Description and Reviews:
Tasting note: Red brick colour turning to amber on the rim. Seductive ripe and complex nose, with undertones of rich jammy and figgy fruit and fine caramel and exotic notes of cedar wood and spice. A superb fruit driven Vintage Port, true to the tradition of this ancient Pinhão Valley estate.
A clear claret/garnet core. The nose is ripe and attractive, but lacking the complexity of say, Taylors ’77 for example. Hints of cherry, brambly red-berried fruit, ginger and honey, though improving with time in glass as more blackberry leaf element begin to appear. The palate is sweet, ripe, very primordial considering the vintage, rounded in texture, supple with a lushness
Another excellent port from Croft that rivals other top producers. The 1977 Port is now fully mature. The port is rich, creamy and intense. Wonderful! Parker rating 88/100 (excellent)
