Critic Notes

The essence of grapes. Full-bodied and tannic, yet very classy and refined. It's got grip, but rather than smashing you over the head with structure, it seduces gently with its wonderful, well-toned muscles. Best Croft since '45. Best after 2010. 3,500 cases made. – James Suckling , Wine Spectator 1997

Score: 96-/100Wine Spectator

The 1994 Croft exhibits an impressive dark ruby/purple color, and a developed, forward, more evolved style than expected. It is moderately sweet, full-bodied, expansive, pure, and rich, but made in an up-front, flattering style. Although outstanding, it is not one of the superstars of the vintage. It will keep for twenty years. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2020.|Importer: Palace Brands, Hartford, CT; tel. (800) 729-3372 Wine Advocate.October, 1996

Score: 90-/100Robert Parker

The bad news is that production levels are down. For the Symington Family Estates Port houses, including Dow’s, Graham’s and Warre’s, production is ...
