2009 Quinta do Crasto

Post by AHB » 13:13 Mon 28 Mar 2016

10-12,000 bottles made. Deep carmine in colour with a narrow rim. Very pronounced nose of blueberries and sweet fruit with lots of flower perfume. Gentle, lazy fruit on entry, bringing a mix of red- and blackcurrants. Gentle tannins support the acidity in providing a nice focus. An elegant style of port which works well. 90/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
