"A very pure pretty bouquet with ripe blueberry and dark plum-scented bouquet." Score: 93/100 points, Neal Martin, http://www.erobertparker.com - May 2011.
"The Croft 2009 reaffirms my opinion that this is really a house on the up, putting the pre-Taylor years when quality had declined firmly behind them and returning to the former glories of the 1920s and 1930s.
Given its price, Croft comes highly recommended. The 2009 Croft has a very pure pretty bouquet with ripe blueberry and dark plum-scented bouquet. Fine definition although not quite as complex as I remember the 2007 at the same stage.
The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, supple tannins, moderate acidity, harmonious with a plush blackberry, crème de cassis and spice-tinged finish. Good potential, although I think the 2007 has an intellectual edge. Tasted May 2011."
