Winemaker's Notes

#81 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013

Quinta do Crasto, which traces its roots back to the 17th century, was purchased by Constantino de Almeida, a partner in the Port house of Constantino, in 1910. In, 1981 Constantino de Almeida's granddaughter Leonor and her husband Jorge Roquette took over the quinta. Following the change in Portuguese law (allowing single quintas to bottle and export wine), Crasto has been producing and exporting table and port wines since 1994. The perseverance and commitment of the Roquette family has restored Quinta do Crasto to its rightful status as one of the great family estates of the Douro.

Critical Acclaim

"This red is luscious, refined and muscular, showing good cut to the creamy, well-spiced flavors. An intense midpalate of cocoa powder carries through to the finish, which features accents of hoisin sauce and plum pudding."
93 Points

"Powerful, focused and intense, this is ripe and delicious, but it has the structure to support the fruit and oak and some pretty good acidity. If you like them sexy, sweet and rich, this qualifies."
92 Points
