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.

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.

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.

This simple red is all fruit in its primary grape flavors of blackberries and currants. For leitão, Portugal’s roast suckling pig.

Lively aromas and flavors of blueberry and cherry are reminiscent of a cru Beaujolais. The light, spicy finish features sandalwood notes. Drink now.

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.

Rich, mature black currant fruit. Good tannins, medium weight, delicate, long finish.

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.

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.
