Sleek in feel, with a mix of raspberry and plum reduction, melted black licorice and fruitcake notes that stretch out over a graphite edge on the finish. Has good energy from start to finish.

Croft's showpiece estate at Pinhão always forms the base of the producer's Vintage Ports. Here it shines on its own in a wonderful perfumed, richly textured wine. In a dry style, the wine goes for richness and nutty, dried raisin flavors.

While still evolving, the flavors mirror the bouquet with additional cracked black pepper and a light eucalyptus note. It’s densely packed with a firm backbone, fresh acidity and incredible harmony that suggest a very long life. Finishes long with good grip.

The 2018 Vintage Port Quinta da Roeda is a field blend aged for approximately 18 months in very large used wooden vats. It comes in with 104 grams of residual sugar. Ripe and expressive, this delicious single-quinta Porto also has fine concentration and some pop on the finish. Indeed, as this sits and airs out, it proves it has a real backbone. Two days later, it was pretty tight.

Roeda is Croft's historic quinta adjacent to the town on Pinhao. Farmed by Antonio Magalhaes since the Fladgate Partnership purchased Croft in 2001, this site is coming back to match its legendary stature. In 2018, the wine has the fatness of a year with ample reserves in the soil, a coolness that feels tied to the river itself. The fruit is rosy and vibrant red, the tannins gentle and aristocratic.
