1970 Croft

Post by AHB » 23:19 Sat 06 Feb 2016

From a bottle ullaged to low shoulder. Polished mahogany in colour, attractive. Slightly oxidised nose, full of furniture polish. Smooth on the palate, red glace cherries with a powerful dose of acidity - big and mouthfilling. Rather hot on the aftertaste, which leads to a long finish full of red cherry and golden syrup. Enjoyable port. 85/100. Opened 06-Feb-16. Decanted 2 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
