Winemaker's Notes:

This blend of mostly Tinta Roriz, with Tinta Barroca and Touriga Francesa, shows intense Douro varietal fruit character balanced with well-integrated American oak. It has a full, rich flavorsome palate with great depth of concentrated mature berry fruit, well balanced with soft, ripe tannins.

About Quinta do Crasto:

Located in the heart of the Douro Valley, on the right bank of the river mid-way between Regua and Pinhao, Quinta do Crasto has been in the family of Leonor and Jorge Roquette for over a century. Nestled on a privileged location in the Douro Demarcated Region, Quinta do Crasto dates back to ancient times. The name Crasto is derived from the Latin word "castrum," or Roman fort. With its commanding unobstructed view of the river, it is not difficult to imagine why the Romans would choose to occupy such a strategic site. Quinta do Crasto produces different styles of port and table wines each year. Together with their winemakers and their entire team, they seek to produce year after year wines that display the unique and beautiful characteristics of the Douro, through a tireless devotion to tradition, integrity and excellence.
