The 1960 Crofts Vintage Porto cost $10 then, has 19% alcohol, and scored 18+ points on the Dionysian scale. Very good for a 60 year-old wine.

Brick and orange on the edge, a complex bouquet of fruits and flowers on the nose, and after decanting, a lighter than usual body.

The color held better than expected. It was paired with blue cheese as it should be.

The wine was even more pale than the photo shows, but old lPorts can be exciting. I’d have saved this one to share but expected it to be broken down by now. I didn’t get it on release. In Vino Veritas.
