2005 Quinta do Crasto vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:22 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Bottled June 2007, released June 2009. Black in colour, a slight stewiness on the nose. Very tannic with some greeness to the tannin. Fruit is present, but is a little subdued, perhaps closed? This has a huge aftertaste, very big and mouth filling - to the extent that the aftertaste is out of balance with the rest of the wine. 86/100. drunk 29 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
