Winery Information

Quinta do Crasto

Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2007)91 pts

Feb 2010 - Jay Miller - The purple-colored 2007 Quinta do Crasto Vintage Port reveals aromas of earth, mineral, espresso, Asian spices, and blackberry compote. On the palate it has excellent breadth, a plush texture, excellent depth, succulent flavors, and enough ripe tannin to evolve for 8-10 years. The wine’s balance suggests that it will still be in its prime at age 20, probably longer.

Wine Enthusiast (2010)91 pts

Better known for its table wines, Quinta do Crasto still retains an important Port program. This big, dry and smoky effort fully justifies that. It is firmly structured and tannic, with a strong black-pepper character that is balanced by the solid structure and concentration. Age over many years. — R.V. (2/1/2013)
