WHAT? 97-pt., CROFT PORT MAGNUMS!

Magnums of Croft? 97 points? Killer 2011 Vintage? Is there a more perfect wine for Christmas??!



Dear Oenophile,

I received this offer late Friday afternoon and moved like a lightning bolt to grab what I could -- sadly only 64 bottles or so....(sad face icon)!

2011 is an excellent "declared" vintage for virtually all of the major of the Port houses (in fact, the quality was so good in 2011 it was called "the worst kept secret in history"). 

I'm amazed to have snagged MAGNUMS. These will age FOREVER in your cellar. You can drink them when you turn 80, or your kids can drink them when they are 21, 31, 41...you get the idea. AGELESS!

2011 CROFT VINTAGE PORT MAGNUM $163!! WS97, JS95

97 points Wine Spectator

Top 100 Wines of 2013 -- "Effusively juicy, rich and concentrated, showing plenty of snap to the crisp and well-spiced flavors of wild berry, dark currant and plum tart. Orange-infused chocolate notes linger on the exotic, mocha-filled finish."

95 points James Suckling
 "Beautiful aromas of violets and blueberries with hints of blue slate. Full body, medium sweet with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. A leafy, stemmy, nutty undertone to this with hints of shaved milk chocolate. Very refined and beautiful. 5,000 cases produced of this foot-trodden wine. Try in 2021."

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
 "The 2011 Croft is initially taciturn on the nose, even after allowing it 20 minutes in my glass. A light swirling immediately awakens the aromatics to offer blackberry, Seville orange marmalade, blueberries and dried fig – complex and quite compelling. There is real mineralité within this bouquet that, returning after 30 minutes, offers alluring ocean spray scents rolling in off the ocean. The palate is medium-bodied with a velvety-smooth opening that belies the fine, structured tannins underneath. It clams up a little towards the finish, shuts the lid tight and consequently there is the sensation of less persistency here compared to the Taylor’s or Fonseca. But Croft has a knack of filling out with bottle age and becomes both gentle and generous with the passing years."

95 points Wine Enthusiast
 *Cellar Selection* "This shows very sweet fruit that's ripe, dense and already delicious. That doesn't mean the tannins don't bring out the firmness at the core of this powerful wine. It is integrated, packed with black plum flavors, and full bodied. For long-term aging."

FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED!! ARRIVES ONE WEEK!!
