2004 Croft LBV

Post by AHB » 17:03 Thu 16 Apr 2015

Deep cherry red, opaque. Muted nose, slightly sulphurous. Modest body, gentle cherry fruit and some bitter dark chocolate tannins; slowly this resolves into an elegant and balanced medium-weight port. A slight dose of acidity on the aftertaste before a long and very fine finish. 87/100. Drunk 12-Apr-15. Pop 'n' pour.
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
