Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Port from Croft is Excellent! It opens with a green tea and pipe tobacco bouquet with hints of licorice and cherry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, soft, creamy and rich. The flavor profile is a very tasty nutty blend of walnut and pecan with notes of rum cake and fig. The finish is rather dry and its monster tannins build-up and stick around for a while. This Port does an excellent job hiding its 20% alcohol. I would serve this gem on its own. It should be shared with all the Port lovers in your circle of friends. My friends all loved it! Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Inky black center with a rim of deep purple. The nose opens rich, ripe fruit with crisp red berry aromas blending with ripe, succulent black fruits. Eucalyptus and rock rose scents merge with hints of crushed mint, fresh citrus notes and a potpourri of savory herbs and dried rose petal. On the palate, the wine is thick, dense and silky, packed with opulent fruit and supported by a mesh of tightly woven tannins. Pairs perfectly with chocolate and chocolate based desserts.
