In anticipation of a forthcoming Croft tasting in The Bunghole, 57 High Holborn, London WC1V 6DT, we thought that it might be a good idea for three of us to test the location. The trial run grew to six people, and was held in the larger room. Links:
Much deeper in colour than the other Ports at the tasting though slightly hazy. Very concentrated on the nose. In the mouth initially very dry followed by good concentrated red fruit. Long aftertaste with furry tannins. Perhaps disappointing compared to other Fonseca 1985s; much drier than expected an without the luscious fruits for which one might wish.
