“The Croft 2009 reaffirms my opinion that this is really a house on the up, putting the pre-Taylor years when quality had declined firmly behind them and returning to the former glories of the 1920’s and 1930’s. Given its price, Croft comes highly recommended.The 2009 Croft has a very pure pretty bouquet with ripe blueberry and dark plum-scented bouquet. Fine definition although not quite as complex as I remember the 2007 at the same stage. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, supple tannins, moderate acidity, harmonious with a plush blackberry, crème de cassis and spice-tinged finish. Good potential.” – 93 Points, Neal Martin (Robert Parker).
“Redolent of blackberry and dark fruits, this also features a fascinating mix of mocha, graphite and tobacco flavors. Very juicy as well, which figures into the finish of fine-grained tannins and spice. An exuberant and refined Vintage Port. Best from 2020 through 2050.” – 95 Points, Wine Spectator.
