Winemaker's Notes:

6 x 75 cl 2003 PORTUGAL 3-6 weeks arrival

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’.

Jet black, opaque, dense appearance. The first burst of aroma is strikingly lead- and yellow grapefruit-like; swirling and more time in the copita open up the bouquet to scents of guava, paraffin, and tangerine; this is not a bouquet that you’d expect, yet one that captures the imagination. The palate entry sizzles with thrillingly tart, ripe, and chiseled flavors of Bing cherry and strawberry; at the midpalate stage, the acidity remains firmly in control, acting as the graceful underpinning for the fruity tastes and cherry, red currant, figs, prunes, and black raisins. Finishes with finesse and a gravitas seldom seen in Croft… until 2003.

The Croft Ports as of late have gone through a sort of renaissance. This vintage will no doubt impress. Full of dark berries and licorice. Very silken in texture with a rich, fruit-driven character that will last decades.

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: 2020andndash;2045.

Wine Spectator ReviewThis is incredible on the nose and palate. It shows masses of wild black fruits with an almost exotic undertone. Full-bodied, medium-sweet and supervelvety. It goes on and on. No doubt one of the best of the vintage. Great Croft here; its single quinta, Roeda, must have delivered in 2003. This could be the best Port from here since 1945.

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.

This impressive vintage port may turn out to be the most impressive wine from Croft in decades. The healthy purple/black color is followed by copious amounts of licorice, chocolate, and over-ripe black fruits. Full- bodied and unctuously-textured, with layers of juicy, succulent, full-throttle fruit, glycerin, high alcohol, and powerful tannin, this large-scaled, youthful vintage port will benefit from 7-10 years of cellaring. It should drink well for 30+ years.
