2004 Quinta do Crasto vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:21 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Deep in colour, opaque and with a slight hint of violet on the rim. Closed on the nose, showing a little heat and blueberry juice. Very silky in structure; lovely fruit and soft tannins. Fruit builds to huge levels and is held together by a great acidity. Chocolate coated plums on the aftertaste, which justs lasts for a very long time. Opulent and delicious. 89/100. Drunk 29 June 2009.
