The joint venture between the Cazes family of Bordeaux and the Roquette family of Quinta do Crasto in the Douro is in its second vintage. This is made using Bordeaux techniques, resulting in a style that is more structured than many Douro wines, exploiting ripe fruit with solid tannins, leavened by sweetness and sweet red fruits. The wood shows through on the finish.

Three producers who have succeeded in branching out/ Only in its third vintage, this Portuguese blend is a stunning wine made by Jorge Roquette, owner of Quinta Do Crassto and Jean-Michel Cazes, owner of Chateau Lynch-Bages in Bordeaux. "Xisto" is the name for the soil. Ripe dark berry fruit, soft tannins and good complexity.

Xisto 2005 - 90 Points, Wine Spectator Insider/ Big and ripe, with dense flavors of mocha, espresso and dark plum. Bittersweet chocolate extends on the intense, spicy finish.

/ This joint venture between the Roquette family of Quinta do Crasto and the Cazes family of Chateau Lynch-Bages in Bordeaux, is a stunning evocation of the schist soils of the Douro. It is uncompromising, with firm, dark tannins. In a classic Bordeaux way, it is still young, the structure dominant and impressive.

Concentrated and ripe, with layers of rich fruit flavors of dark plum, dark cherry, blackberry and mocha. Balanced and structured, with an elegant finish of cream, chocolate and spice. Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Franca. Drink now through 2015. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
