2008 Quinta do Crasto

Post by DRT » 08:39 Sat 07 Aug 2010

Cask sample tasted blind in June 2010 as part of this review

Dark purple/red with a peppery nose. Medium weight with a smooth entry of forrest fruits. Good acidic backbone with fruit that just keeps on coming through to dominate the palate. Tannins come late but are big and bold. A long mouthwatering finish. A very fruit-forward port that should prove to be very good in 10-15 years. 87 points.
