Food Pairings for Quinta Do Crasto Ovr
A beautiful robe of darkest black cherry accompanied by a most appealing (but somewhat closed) nose of chocolate and preserved raspberry (or, possibly some strains of blackberry in the Pacific Northwest). More wonderful light tannins riding a dark cherry chocolate cake filling upon entry. Finish quite smooth with greater vinosity than cherry and lasting a few seconds (medium). A bit warm on the palate but a very fine wine for the price.

Rich, mature black currant fruit. Good tannins, medium weight, delicate, long finish.
From the blistering Douro (traditionally more renowned for port than table wine) comes this hot-blooded red from Quinta do Crasto. You can literally taste the heat emanating from the stony soil as flavors of dried cherry and stewed plum burst out of this gamy, medium bodied wine. Firm tannins keep these ebullient proceedings in order.
Lively aromas and flavors of blueberry and cherry are reminiscent of a cru Beaujolais. The light, spicy finish features sandalwood notes. Drink now.
This simple red is all fruit in its primary grape flavors of blackberries and currants. For leitão, Portugal’s roast suckling pig.
This red wine speaks of Portugal. It's plush with dark fruits, and espresso foam. Very rich and full of lively character on the palate. A great match for meat-based fare.
The 2007 TINTO (just labeled andldquo;Crastoandrdquo; because some of the fruit comes from Crastoandrsquo;s vineyards outside of the official Quinta do Crasto) is a blend of Tinta Roriz (35%), Tinta Barroca (25%), Touriga Franca (25%) and Touriga Nacional (15%). It is charming and pleasing, but rather light and compact, likely to be refreshing, but early maturing. This is fun, but it has a certain straightforward simplicity to it. Drink nowandndash;2014.
This simple red is all fruit in its primary grape flavors of blackberries and currants. For leitandatilde;o, Portugalandrsquo;s roast suckling pig.
Vibrant and fresh color with purple hues. Intense aromas of fruits of the forest of blackberries and raspberries. A medium bodied palate which is rich in wild berry characters. The wine finishes with great length, balance and texture.
