2003 Croft

It is hard to recall a young vintage of Croft that has impressed so greatly. A much bolder style than the norm, yet despite its evident weight and layered intensity, this is as refined and elegant as any 2003 I have tasted. A sweeter accent than some examples perhaps, this offers a layered intense palate of ripe blackberry and almost cassis-like characters, yet there is a fine sense of freshness than ensures great balance. A welcome return to form for Croft and a wine that will live long in the bottle. Very impressive.
