($64) Bright medium ruby. Vibrant aromas of blueberry, graphite and violet. Suave, sweet and very firmly built; still a bit youthfuly clenched but concentrated, intensely fruity and stylish. This is structured to develop slowly in bottle. Seemed to grow longer as it opened in the glass. Like a mini-Taylor. (Kobrand, Inc., New York, NY)

A striking, individualistic nose of spring flowers, blackberries, blueberries, and lead pencil shavings emerges from this saturated purple-colored 2000. Evolved yet expansive, sweet, and generous, it admirably conceals moderately high tannins under a wealth of fruit and glycerin. The aromatic profile and attack merit a score in the mid-nineties, but the finish is short, thus lowering the overall rating. My instincts suggest there is more to this port than it revealed the days I tasted it.

A harmonious Port. Very grapey, with a hint of tar and dried roses. Medium-bodied, medium sweet, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Not a great Croft, but pleasant.

For The Love of Port | 94+

Opaque crimson color. Fragrant floral notes with raspberry and strawberry nuances and a touch of red licorice are provocative. Sweet, ripe and medium-bodied with a plum profile and velvety texture for such a youngster. In possession of a solid spine of acidity and ripe tannins leading to a seductive and lingering finish.

About This Producer


The House of Croft was founded over three hundred years ago. The earliest evidence of the firm's activity as a Port shipper dates from 1678, coincidentally the year of the first ever recorded shipments of Port wine. The company was originally known as Phayre & Bradley after its founding partners and took its present name in 1736 when it was joined by John Croft, a member of an old and distinguished family of Yorkshire wine merchants. The Croft family played a prominent and influential role in the Port wine trade and elevated the House of Croft to the place of distinction which it occupies to this day. In 1911 the House of Croft was acquired by the Gilbeys, the distinguished English wine trade family. It is now owned and run by descendants of two old Port wine families, the Yeatmans and Fladgates. The place of distinction occupied by Croft and its wines is due in no small measure to its ownership of one of the finest estates of the Douro Valley, the famous Quinta da Roeda.
