Croft Vintage Port, 1945

USED TO TOAST THE MEMORY OF HENRY TURNER, KINDLY GIVEN TO US BY HIS WIDOW, ANN.

Quite alcoholic at first, but then a lovely cherry liqueur, quince and perfume aroma. The palate is wonderful, lovely dried fruit, warm spice with well integrated fruit, toffee and pretty rose aromas. It has passed its prime, but is a delightful old wine. 90pts (Sept 2005)
