Croft never seems to get much publicity since the wines, while always very good, sometimes even excellent, never quite reach the superb level of the top houses in Oporto. However, Croft seems to do surprisingly well, often rivaling the top ports, in the less glamorous vintages such as 1975 and 1966. Both the 1975 and 1977 are rich, creamy, intense ports that should be fully mature within 10-12 years, relatively soon for a port.

Light garnet color, with aromas of dried berries, nuts and flowers. Tea too. Full and soft palate, with attractive smooth texture and sweet fruit. Very sweet. Very ready.
