NV Croft Fine Ruby

A slight hint of purple to the tone of this 70% opaque port. Floral nose that is well developed. Soft on the palate, very gentle; sweet at first and lacking fruit but gentle fruit comes through with patience. The finish is gentle and of good length. A soft, light and pleasant style of ruby port. 83/100. 04-May-16
