Croft Description

Vintage Ports are made exclusively from the grapes of one harvest. Bottled after two years in casks, it is in the bottle that the long, slow, ageing process transforms the young wine into a magnificent Vintage Port.

Wine Spectator: 88 Points

A harmonious Port. Very grapey, with a hint of tar and dried roses. Medium-bodied, medium sweet, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Not a great Croft, but pleasant. Best after 2008. 7,300 cases made.

Wine Advocate

A striking, individualistic nose of spring flowers, blackberries, blueberries, and lead pencil shavings emerges from this saturated purple-colored 2000. Evolved yet expansive, sweet, and generous, it admirably conceals moderately high tannins under a wealth of fruit and glycerin. The aromatic profile and attack merit a score in the mid-nineties, but the finish is short, thus lowering the overall rating. My instincts suggest there is more to this port than it revealed the days I tasted it. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025?
