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 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
