2003 Quinta do Crasto vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:20 Sat 11 Jul 2009

18,000 bottles produced; normal production being 6-22,000. Deep and solid red. Opulent fruit on a nose which is quite open. A good texture, nicely silky. Tannins grip gently but not excessively, with more ripe acidity than the 2000 shown alongside. Delightful development in the mouth. Complete with a gentle but complex aftertaste. 90/100. Drunk 29 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
