2012 Croft Roeda

Lovely colour with a purple rim. Stunning nose, full of opulent blackcurrant and pineapple. Soft in texture with lush fruit and then very firm tannins. A great palate presence with such rich fruit but a great balance. The aftertaste is slow to develop but is long and has multiple layers. Delicious port. 91-93. 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
