2004 Croft LBV

Post by AHB » 18:14 Sat 27 Feb 2016

Another of the Tesco half bottles sold by the cartload in 2010. Bottled 2009. Dark red in colour, opaque. Faint nose, fruity and slight green wood. Powerful on the palate, full of fruit and surprisingly tannic. Strong dose of acidity on the aftertaste and a long finish. Surprisingly powerful. 85/100. Opened 14-Feb-16. Decanted 2 days.
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
