2003 Vintage Port
Portvin - Touriga Nacional - 75 cl - 20,50 %
96 point - Robert Parker: 'An opaque core with bright ruby rim. The nose just explodes from the glass: blackberry, bilberry, violets, morning dew and cassis all with superb delineation. The palate is full-bodied, magnificent and regal, with better definition and focus than the millennial port. Blackberry, blueberry, that sense of minerality coming through towards the finish, seamless with unnoticeable alcohol. Great finesse on the finish, this is Croft returning to past glories. Outstanding'
96 point - James Suckling: 'Chocolate, walnut and ripe berry aromas, with some figs and plums showing the heat of the vintage. Full-bodied and very sweet with dried fruits and a softness and lusciousness. Shows the unique character of base of the blend, Quinta do Roeda. Drinking beautifully now but can improve with age. Just starting to open.'
