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 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
