2004 Croft LBV

Post by AHB » 12:33 Mon 04 Jan 2016

Bottled 2009. Dark red in colour, opaque. Nosing of sweet blackcurrants and red cherries. Deeply fruit on the palate, powerful but acidic blackcurrants and gentle tannins. The acidity is harsh on the aftertaste and warming at the start of the finish. Sweet blackcurrants on the sticky finish. 86/100. 03-Jan-16. Decanted 4 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
