Robert Parker – 93
The millennial Croft was blended by the Taylor’s team who had just acquired the house. It has a warm, inviting bouquet with maraschino cherry, California raisin, burning embers in a winter fire and Tiptree strawberry jam. The palate has a mellow entry, a little more forward and generous than I anticipated a touch of Indian spice on the entry that fans out nicely across the mouth, supple and slightly honeyed towards the long finish. Lovely. Tasted May 2011.
