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.</P>

When I tasted this in '88, I thought it was extremely well structured, but the wine has lost some of its body. Deep ruby, with a raisin and chocolate nose, medium-bodied, with medium-hard tannins and a rather austere finish. Slightly out of balance. Perhaps it needs more time. (JS)
