2002 Croft Quinta Da Roeda Port
Deep ruby-red core surrounded by a narrow brick coloured rim. The nose displays a wonderful warmth and maturity, with a dense core of molasses and sweet scents of ripe black cherry, prune, sultana and dried fig. As it opens up in the glass, the wine reveals intricate dimensions of aroma, with a subtle resiny hint of eucaplyptus and evocative notes of cigar box, rose petal and freshly baked bread. On the palate, the first impression is of dense, velvety texture and generous, mellow flavour, lifted on the mid-palate by a lively acidity and beautifully integrated, polished tannins. The opulent flavours of dark chocolate, maraschino and plum pudding linger into the impressively long finish.
