Croft Reserve Ruby Port
Port from Portugal | Alc: 20% – Smooth and Fruity
Croft Reserve Ruby Port has a powerful, rich blackcurrant bouquet with subtle hints of cedar and spice. In the mouth black, woodland fruit and chocolate flavors dominate. The wine has good weight and structure with a fine finish.
The House of Croft, founded in 1678, was one of the earliest shippers of Port wines and since the seventeenth century, has been renowned for the excellence of its production.
Can be enjoyed on its own after a meal, or paired with fruit-based desserts or a rich cheese plate. Made to be enjoyed immediately.
“This is a lovely Ruby Reserve, showing excellent concentration for the level, focus, fine flavor and a hint of eucalyptus on the nose. With a lingering sweet edge on opening, it eventually becomes drier and tighter with aeration—not that it really needs any. This is nuanced, not about obvious sweet fruit. It is tightly wound in its youth. It even becomes a little steely, with a bit of a stonewashed feel. The finish is still laced with flavor at that point, some strawberries mingled with rhubarb.” 88 Pts – Wine Advocate
