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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
