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