Quinta Do Crasto Red Blend Douro Vinha da Ponte 2007

Member Review by dynowine:

Tested from a preservation machine. Alluring nose of creamy vanilla cake and dark red fruit and perfume with notes of warm spice (e.g. cinnamon) and hint of earth (dust). Well-balanced in the mouth with tasty red berry and dark cherry fruit in a noticeable earthy wooden envelope with hints of the warm spices. Fruity and a bit watery but quite pleasant in the finish. Dry. Body medium, acid medium, tannin medium minus.

Quinta do Crasto is located on the right bank of the river Douro, halfway between Régua and Pinhão. The quinta covers 130 hectares, of which 70 are planted with grade “A” vineyards. Sitting on a privileged location in the Douro Demarcated Region, Quinta do Crasto has been in the family of Leonor and Jorge Roquette for over a century. Like other great Douro quintas, its origins lie in ancient times (the name CRASTO comes from the Latin word castrum, a Roman fort). References to Quinta do Crasto date as far back as the early seventeenth century, long before the Douro became the world’s first demarcated wine region in 1756. Large investments were made over the last years to restructure the vineyards and install modern winery equipment, guaranteeing the production of high quality table wines, such as Crasto Douro Red, Quinta do Crasto Douro Reserva Old Vines, single variety wines (100 % Touriga Nacional and 100% Tinta Roriz) and single vineyard wines (Vinha da Ponte and Vinha Maria Teresa), as well as top port wine categories such as Late Bottled Vintage and Vintage Port. While using state-of-the-art vinification technology, the quinta has always retained its traditional foot treading method in granite tanks, called “lagares”. All the investments made in the past combined with the tradition and passion that is put into the wine making, has given Quinta do Crasto a prominent name in wine market scene, at home and abroad.

Reminds one of a rich fruity Bordeaux, but Portuguese style and without all the funk. Tested on well-aired bottle, about 3 hrs. Alluring nose of deep dark berry fruit and floral and hints of smoke/licorice. In the mouth heavenly blend of savory dusty ripe deep red fruit with a metal wrapper. Finishes with drying tannin at the front of the mouth. This was excellent. Dry. Body medium, acid medium, tannin medium plus.

The rich, round palate builds on an elegant, complex nose, with both hosting flavors and scents of earth, cedar, vanilla, dark fruits and wild berries. Spices elevate the sweet, ripe fruit to a pleasantly integrated balance. Plum, with a syrupy ripeness, is the dominant fruit flavor. At times the plum overpowers other elements, but complexity and depth soon return to put the palate back in balance, sustaining interest over time. An opulent but elegant wine.
