Croft Vintage Port 1994

SKU 2120


The Croft 1994 Vintage has compact, intense blackcurrant and cherry aromas, followed by a rich, firm palate with a good tannic structure. This wine will need cellaring for another 10-15 years.

Wine SpectatorThe essence of grapes. Full-bodied and tannic, yet very classy and refined. It's got grip, but rather than smashing you over the head with structure, it seduces gently with its wonderful, well-toned muscles. Best Croft since '45. Best after 2010. 3,500 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 1994 Croft exhibits an impressive dark ruby/purple color, and a developed, forward, more evolved style than expected. It is moderately sweet, full-bodied, expansive, pure, and rich, but made in an up-front, flattering style. Although outstanding, it is not one of the superstars of the vintage. It will keep for twenty years. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2020.

Robert Parker, October 1996
