Croft Quinta da Roeda Port 2008

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Big and rich, with plenty of grip to the vibrant dark plum and sweet cherry flavors, which are firmed up by solid tannins. Features spice and chocolate notes on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2018.

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’.

Purple in color and in its touriga-like scent of wild blueberries and raw Marcona almonds, this is bright and succulent Port. The tannins are silky, the fruit covering their earthiness in sweet reds and blues. This is the kind of modern vintage thatrsquo;s enjoyable on release, and probably at its best within ten years.
