Croft Reserve Ruby Port is blended from red Ports produced in the Baixo Corgo and Cima Corgo areas of the upper Douro Valley, selected for their depth of colour, intense fruit and full, firm palate. These Port wines are matured for about three years in oak vats, where they soften and develop without losing their fresh, intense fruity character and their deep ruby colour.
Tasting Notes: A powerful, rich blackcurrant bouquet with subtle hints of cedar and spice. In the mouth black, woodland fruit and chocolate flavours dominate. The wine has good weight and structure with a fine finish.
"This is a lovely Ruby Reserve, showing excellent
concentration for the level, focus, fine flavor and
a hint of eucalyptus on the nose. (...)The finish is still laced
with flavor at that point, some strawberries
mingled with rhubarb"
