Croft Late Bottled Vintage Port 1985

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1985 will be an early-developing port. It shows aromas that border on overripeness and offers scents of plums and black cherries. Full-bodied, rich yet lush and soft, this husky wine had loads of concentration, a very sweet long finish and light tannins.*-- The Wine Advocate*

Croft - Vinhos, S.A:
Roêda has long been recognised as one of the great Port vineyards and in the Douro Valley there is a common saying, attributed to the nineteenth century poet Vega Cabral, which goes ‘if the wine district were a golden ring, Roêda would be the diamond’.

Croft never seems to get much publicity since the wines, while always very good, sometimes even excellent, never quite reach the superb level of the top houses in Oporto. However, Croft seems to do surprisingly well, often rivaling the top ports, in the less glamorous vintages such as 1975 and 1966. The1985 will be an early-developing port.
