Douro Red

Quinta do Crasto

Reserva Old Vines ( Vinhas Velhas ) Douro Red Blend 2015

Duoro red blend from old vines. Takes about 45 mins to fully open up. Dark as night with a complex nose. On the pallet it feels rich and complex with an unpredictable finesse and long finish reminiscent of dried plum, vanilla, and a certain earthyness.

Absolutely the best wine I’ve ever tasted from Portugal. I’d say drink up, this is extremely enjoyable at the moment.

I am loving wine from Portugal. Needs to breathe then so nice. At first it was like prunes. But after a while was a spicy berry. — 2 days ago

Big red with dark fruits and earthy notes wrapped in solid tannins, drinkable but could sit for another year or two. — 21 hours ago

Wednesday Wine Committee from this past week. A fantastic hosting by @joe leatherwood . 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds, 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind as usual.

Very good right now and hardly showing any heat. It’s so well balanced and integrated that I called this early ‘80s port. Plethora of baking spices, cherry liqueur, dark cocoa dipped graham cracker, dates and cherry fig. Nice sweetness. In a good window.

Many always talk about the much praised 1994 vintage but 1992 was equally good for some producers.
