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