Croft Port 750m 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Neal Martin (Wine Advocate): ...very pure pretty bouquet with ripe blueberry and dark plum-scented bouquet. Fine definition... The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, supple tannins, moderate acidity, harmonious with a plush blackberry, crème de cassis and spice-tinged finish. Good potential... (May 2011)

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’.

Opaque blackish hue with a ruby edge. Full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Highly extracted. Moderately tannic. Black fruits, licorice, lacquer. Quite aromatic with an extremely rich and flavorful mouthfeel. Dark and powerful flavors have a fine grip and intensity, while the full-throttle character of the wine's other components bode well for decades of cellars.

The 1994 Croft exhibits an impressive dark ruby/purple color, and a developed, forward, more evolved style than expected. It is moderately sweet, full-bodied, expansive, pure, and rich, but made in an up-front, flattering style. Although outstanding, it is not one of the superstars of the vintage. It will keep for twenty years. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2020.

The 2003 Croft Vintage Port reveals an opaque, black-colored core with notes of dark ruby on the rim. Its gorgeously creamy, profound nose displays sweet dark cherries, black plums, pepper, raisin jam, and blueberries. Thick, satin-textured, and immensely rich, this opulent yet elegant wine is engagingly warm, concentrated, and harmonious. Copious quantities of plums, black cherries, jammy blackberries and spices are found throughout its personality as well as in its prolonged, spirit-tinged, finish. Projected maturity: 2020-2045.

Based on the Roêda vineyard, this opulent, fruity wine is dense, beautifully ripe, a powerhouse of sweet fruit, figs and raisins, plum jelly and the roundest, most generous tannins. It’s a wine that will show well in the next few years, but which should age magnificently.

The essence of grapes. Full-bodied and tannic, yet very classy and refined. It's got grip, but rather than smashing you over the head with structure, it seduces gently with its wonderful, well-toned muscles. Best Croft since 1945. Better after 2010.

Incredible aromas of crushed blackberry and raspberry. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a very velvety and round texture. Goes on and on. Gorgeous vintage Port. Drink now through 2015.

Redolent of blackberry and dark fruits, this also features a fascinating mix of mocha, graphite and tobacco. Very juicy as well, which features into the finish of fine-grained tannins and spice. An exuberant and refined Vintage Port. Best from 2020 t... Wine Spectator. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 2009 Croft Vintage Port 750ml
