Winemaker's Notes

#3 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008This is an intense and complex wine with a firm, well-structured palate. It shows ripe, concentrated fruit with vibrant acidity and a long finish."Deeply colored, with intense yet refined aromas and flavors of kirsch, boysenberry, dark cherry and spice. The fruit is supported by focused notes of mineral and graphite, and the finish is loaded with dark chocolate and medium tannins. Drink now through 2015." 95 Points Wine Spectator

    I was quite impressed with this terrific offering from Quinta do Crasto. This opaque dark purple wine opens with a spice blackberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is very well balanced, wit...
