Founded in 1588, Croft is the oldest Port shippers still active today and is mainly renowned for its Vintage Ports, including famous Quinta da Roêda.
“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. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025” – 90pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, October 2002
