2009 Croft LBV

Post by AHB » 15:44 Sun 08 Jun 2014

Bottled 2014. Deep red, intensely coloured with a narrow transparent rim. Violets and blackberries on the nose. An oddly neutral entry with no texture or flavour but an explosion of fruit and soft tannin on the mid-palate. The palate presence gets very big with a delicious floral fruit aftertaste and a big finish. Drink now or soon - this would be a really nice cellar defender full of rich floral fruit. 88/100. Drunk 03-Jun-14.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
