Deep ruby black colour with a narrow purple rim. The nose opens with a fine crisp fruitiness, black cherry, blackberry and cassis, and aromas of fresh plum. Delicate floral notes of rose petal and violet emerge to provide elegance and complexity. The wine has the typical Croft roundness and smoothness offset by a fresh acidity and firm but well integrated tannins.
The palate is crammed with intense berry fruit and finishes with luscious flavours of strawberry and cherry. A superb reserve Port, displaying all the fine fruit character which is a hallmark of the Croft style.
