2010 Quinta do Crasto

Post by AHB » 11:51 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Deep red, very dark, opaque centre. Closed on the nose showing little other than some scant blackcurrant. Nice texture, initially wonderfully fragrant on the palate before a powerful acidic core drives through. There is a lovely fragrance to the wine and fruit which promises a wonderful complexity. The fresh, grassy and attractive fruit aftertaste leads to a great black chocolate and sour cherry finish. Very tasty. 92/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
