2002 Croft Roeda

Post by AHB » 19:46 Sat 27 Feb 2016

Dark red in colour, but not showing any youth; 90% opaque. Subdued plums on the nose. Sweet dried figs and fat plums on the palate. Smooth and sweet with soft tannins and a nice balance. Late on the palate there is spice and coriander. Figgy flavoured finish and a huge dose of heat late in the aftertaste which takes a long time to fade but eventually gives way to an enjoyable gentley chewy finish. Very pleasant. 87/100. 25-Feb-16. Pop 'n' pour.
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
