2005 Croft Roeda

Post by winesecretary » 22:12 Sun 21 Jun 2020

From half.

+48 hours

90% opaque, red rim

Nose: distinct note of victoria plum crumble.

Palate: attractive warm rich red and black fruits jostling quite aggressively in a mixed fruit cobbler

Finish: warm and rich black fruits, pleasing hint of prune at the end.

I certainly wouldn't have spotted it as Croft blind, but a very good bottle, and, unlike the previous half from the same case, with ample time to go.
