2009 Croft

Post by AHB » 22:02 Wed 21 May 2014

A very odd nose, smelling of cold roast pork! Fragrant purple fruit and powerful tannins give a big palate. The tannins dominate with the acidity just showing on the tip of the tongue. The palate develops and the tannins relent to release a lovely fragrant fruit. The fruit is opulent and ripe, perhaps slightly jammy and the jamminess shows in the aftertaste before a distant cocoa finish with green edged tannins. 89/100. Drunk 14-May-14.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
