1. Quinta Do Crasto Vinha da Ponte Douro (2010)

Next » 1 of 12
Average price: $247.67 from 1 store
Average of 70 years old vines, mixed blacks from a vineyard first planted in 1914, aged in 100% French oak for 19 months Floral and earthy and very mineral on the nose with faint notes of cigar wrapper, black tea, white pepper and violets. Rich, deep and bright on entry with fine tension in the mouth, this shows lovely depth on the palate with deep burnished black cherry and plummy fruit with a fine bitter edge framed with hints of cinnamon, bitter chocolate, and licorice. This is packed with dry extract, and with 15% alcohol with a ph of 3.5 this shows remarkably well balanced, finishing with dried cherry and dried cranberry notes, hint of pomegranate and persistent minerality. 94pts
