      Winemaker Notes

      Deep purple in color, this wine shows an extraordinary intensity of wild fruit aromas, elegant cocoa notes and delicate spice hints. The same intensity is found on the palate, with excellent volume and a compact structure made up of serious, polished and fine-textured tannins. Everything is wrapped in fresh wild berry fruit notes. This is a wine with a balanced finish and, as it was bottled without filtration, it meets all the conditions for evolving positively in the bottle.

      Critical Acclaim

      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      The 2013 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a field blend with 116 grams of residual sugar. It is a traditional, unfiltered LBV bottled in June 2017 with a long cork. This is elegance with deceptive power. Focused and tight, this is a bit closed just now, but you can already see how expressive the fruit will become with time. The tannins give fine support to the fruit, but they are ripe enough to allow you to dive in early. They will also allow this to age beautifully. This is a pretty fine LBV—Crasto doesn't make bad ones. It is tight enough so that it is worth being a little conservative in evaluation just now, but it should evolve well in the cellar. Now, look at that price. Traditionally styled LBVs are the best value in Port. This is more interesting than some Vintage Ports in this report.

      Quinta do Crasto, Portugal
      Quinta do Crasto Vineyards Along the Douro River Winery Image
      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.

      The home of Port—perhaps the most internationally acclaimed beverage—the Douro region of Portugal is one of the world’s oldest delimited wine regions, established in 1756. The vineyards of the Douro, set on the slopes surrounding the Douro River (known as the Duero in Spain), are incredibly steep, necessitating the use of terracing and thus, manual vineyard management as well as harvesting. The Douro's best sites, rare outcroppings of Cambrian schist, are reserved for vineyards that yield high quality Port.

      While more than 100 indigenous varieties are approved for wine production in the Douro, there are five primary grapes that make up most Port and the region's excellent, though less known, red table wines. Touriga Nacional is the finest of these, prized for its deep color, tannins and floral aromatics. Tinta Roriz (Spain's Tempranillo) adds bright acidity and red fruit flavors. Touriga Franca shows great persistence of fruit and Tinta Barroca helps round out the blend with its supple texture. Tinta Cão, a fine but low-yielding variety, is now rarely planted but still highly valued for its ability to produce excellent, complex wines.

      White wines, generally crisp, mineral-driven blends of Arinto, Viosinho, Gouveio, Malvasia Fina and an assortment of other rare but local varieties, are produced in small quantities but worth noting.

      With hot summers and cool, wet winters, the Duoro has a maritime climate.

      Port is a sweet, fortified wine with numerous styles: Ruby, Tawny, Vintage, Late Bottled Vintage (LBV), White, Colheita, and a few unusual others. It is blended from from the most important red grapes of the Douro Valley, based primarily on Touriga Nacional with over 80 other varieties approved for use. Most Ports are best served slightly chilled at around 55-65°F.
