2003 Croft vintage port.
Regular readers may recall that I am firm on letting ports mature before drinking them, but I'm making an exception this evening in an effort to broaden my horizons. And because the stuff is available across the river at a great price and I want to try to gauge when its drinking window may open.
I tasted it at an industry tasting in the Pierre Hotel in NYC maybe 8 years ago or so. I don't remember how long it had been opened, but it was terrific. The 1945 we begged a sip of was just about perfect.
