1995 Quinta do Crasto LBV

Post by AHB » 22:23 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Mahogany red and with lots of sediment floating in the wine. Mature wine on the nose, slightly musty and with some heat. Light bodied, with leather and dates and a slight acidity. A little loose, but still very pleasant. Great aftertaste, slightly bitter but very enjoyable. 83/100. drunk 29 June 2009.

83 points is a perfectly pleasant port. I thought this was respectable but with some minor flaws which further decanting time might help to overcome. Unfortunately, we didn't have the opportunity to try this over an extended period of time.
