Wine Spectator 96
"A beauty in the making, with waves of dark currant preserves, warmed fig and steeped blackberry fruit, all infused with chai spice, tobacco, singed alder and espresso cream accents. Very grippy on the finish, but this is long and smoldering too. Best from 2035 through 2060."

Decanter 96
"The predominantly south-facing Quinta da Roda provides the cornerstone of this vintage Port, the best from Croft since the 1960s - and it's well priced too. It's surprisingly demure on the nose with underlying plump, juicy plums and cherries. It's similarly voluptuous on the palate initially - in true Croft style - with a wonderfully ripe, broad tannic core rising in the mouth. It's dense and rather gorgeous all the way through to a fresh, vibrant finish."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95
"The 2017 Vintage Port is a field blend, not quite bottled but the final blend set for bottling in about a week. It was aged for approximately 20 months in French oak and comes in with 97 grams of residual sugar. Fresh and lively, showing vivid fruit and a clean finish, this is also nicely lifted on the finish. It is surprisingly accessible. This is also a bit more expressive at the moment than its Serikos sibling this issue, but it's also lighter and a little less powerful. This can be one to approach young, but I wouldn't do it unless you want to sacrifice complexity and harmony."

Wine & Spirits 95
"Crofts Quinta da Roda is sited on the north side of the Douro at the entrance to Pinho. David Guimaraens reports that Roda was the first Fladgate Partnership estate to begin harvest in 2017, on August 31. He caught the fruit while it still had detail, though much of that complexity is masked for now behind a blackout curtain of youthful tannins. The wine is sleek, with bosky cherry flavors and a massive structure, needing a day to show its luscious fruit and integrate it into a compact, juicy black sphere. On the third day open, the wines restraints are slightly less tense, the flavors hinting at licorice and black cherry with a mellow schist reverb. Beautifully knit, this is the most compelling and ageworthy Croft Vintage yet, under the Fladgate Partnership."

Wine Enthusiast 93
"A beautifully juicy wine, packed with firm tannins and with great black fruits already in balance. The wine has style, never hinting too much at power, but instead going for complexity." Drink from 2030.
