Croft is one of the most distinguished of all Port houses. Founded in 1588, it is the oldest firm still active today as a Port wine producer. Croft remains a family company, dedicated to the production of the finest Ports of all styles.
The NV Reserve Ruby Porto is a blend of typical Douro grapes and wines of different ages, aged for three to four years in neutral wood. It's sweet, concentrated, and well structured with good body, and medium plus acid and tannin. The rich palate gives out flavors of plum, black currant, oak, cherry, chocolate, and roasted herbs, with subtle hints of spice and cedar. The finish is slightly gutsy. A nice complement to chocolate chip fudgy brownies.
