1987 Croft Roeda

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

Mature port the colour of burnished copper with a wide transparent rim, 30% opaque. A warm nose of sweetened rhubarb, sharp but attractive. Sweet entry, smooth and fruity; the fruit is baked but attractive. Good complexity on the palate with a lovely spicy edge to the sloe dominated fruit. A tingling aftertaste with a warm length followed by a delicious dry finish full of dried and sour blackcurrant. Tasty, but did fade and thin in the glass over the course of the evening. Served blind this was guessed to be Quinta do Noval 1978. 88/100. 27-Oct-15. 11½ hour decant.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.

This was actually a 87 not 67, although it was pale and looked much older than it was.

CR87, being CPR’s backup bottle, and originally labelled ‘£’. Decanted 08:00. Lovely red, 40% opaque. Quite dry. Bitter note. Light.
