2002 Croft Roeda

Post by AHB » 23:40 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Red in colour, but with a brick tone. Opaque at the centre and with a wide rim. Some harshness or sourness to the nose with not much fruit showing. Hollow on the entry with dry tannins and hints of baked, sweet fruit but the tannins dominate. Much better on the aftertaste and finish, but this is not a port in a great place at the moment. 83/100. 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
