2010 Croft LBV

Post by AHB » 23:04 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Bottled 2015. Deep red with a narrow rim; no bricking. Limited on the nose with a bit of brown wood and gentle flowery fruit. Modest entry with little fruit showing initially but then comes a flow of gentle tannins and soft fruit. The palate is sharp and unbalanced but should improve if the port is allowed to sit in the bottle for a year or so. The promise of this port is shown in the long and outstanding finish. 84/100. May 2015.
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
