A blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Sousão and mixed old vines From a property purchased in 2002 with vines planted from 2002 to 2009 but this is made with an additional 30% of mixed blacks from old vines on a nearby property they also purchased. This spends 12 months in oak, 20% new 80% used. Pretty perfumed nose that's inky, floral and plummy with, a touch of integrated oak and a hint of layex VA that yields to some earthy and sour cherry aromas. Round and open if bright on entry, with nice dusty tannins that helps this broaden on the palate. Retaining good transparency and a lot of late palate intensity to the fruit, this gains a stony note on the backend as the fruit turns bright with pithy accents to the sour plum flavors. there’s a little sweetness here accompanying the pretty fruit on the moderately long finish. 88pts

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 Tinto Crasto is a blend of Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional, 95% aged and fermented in tank with the rest in French oak for 12 months.... A nice follow-up to the lovely 2010 Tinto, this is of course younger, more exuberant and fresher, with a richer demeanor – although that to a considerable extent is merely because this is newly bottled and the 2010 has an extra year of age. This is also a bit more “lifted” in the way the fruit is presented, but right at this moment, they seem roughly on par, this bottling having become quite consistent as well as routinely delicious. As noted earlier, I believe that these can hold a bit, but what they do best is be fresh and pure, so this is the one I’d pick at the moment and in the long run it will be a slightly better wine than the 2010. They don’t turn into anything special, though, so don’t hesitate to dive in. It is going to be great this year." -eRobertParker.com
