Not a bad Port for the price, around 5 a bottle depending on where you buy it from. Good dark colour which I like in a port, lots of fruit, a little thin but still a very enjoyable port wine. Not as good as LBV ports but very close, so probably not as much aging in this one.

Here's the notes from the Croft site:

Tasting Notes
This is a reserve Port, blended from a selection of our finest reserve wines, which have been aged in wood for four years.

A big opulent reserve with seductive rich dark berry fruit nose. This wine fills the palate with flavours of blackcurrants and dark plums, with nuances of chocolate. A full bodied wine with a long and seductive finish.

Background Information
The House of Croft was founded over three hundred years ago. The earliest evidence of the firm's activity as a Port shipper dates from 1678, coincidentally the year of the first ever-recorded shipments of Port wine.

The Croft family played a prominent and influential role in the Port wine trade and elevated the House of Croft to the place of distinction, which it occupies to this day.
In 1911 the House of Croft was acquired by the Gilbeys, the distinguished English wine trade family. It is now owned and run by descendants of two old Port wine families, the Yeatman's and Fladgate's.

The place of distinction occupied by Croft and its wines is due in no small measure to its ownership of one of the finest estates of the Douro Valley, the famous Quinta da Roda.
