with the following review:
Blackberry and brooding cassis flavours with milk chocolate, caramel, toffee (consistent), as well as earth. Good port, could age for a dozen years or so. 90 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Croft Late Bottled Vintage Port 2004, D.O.C., Douro, France: Vintages Wine Panel: One of the benefits of LBV is that you can enjoy the blessings of a declared vintage almost right away, without the need to cellar it. Made in a modern style, this opaque ruby-black Port is rich and delicious. Entices the nose and palate with notes of smoke, tar, chocolate, toffee, and intense dark berry fruit. Medium bodied, very smooth and long-finishing, this is ready-to-drink LBV. My note: Is there anything more comforting than port? (I mean aside from human contact.) I think of port as the Diana Krall of wines: sultry, seductive and smooth. This is a warm, rich after-dinner drink with layers of black plums and blackberries. A long, satisfying finish. 87601 20% S 750 mL $17.95 Score: 90/100. January 22, 2011 Best Value Dessert Wine. Full Review
