QUINTA DO CRASTO Douro 'Flor do Crasto' 2012

Although Quinta do Crasto was founded in 1615, there is nothing old about this modern style red blend which comes from the acre estate. This wine is a blend of Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and weighs in at14.5%. Winemakers Manuel Lobo and Tomás Roquette take on this value project red that is a wonderful success. The wine opens with aromas reminiscent of violets, blueberry cobbler, blackberry and smoke. The red blend has a dense core and rich flavors of mocha, smoked meats, blueberry pie and black cherry. There is a strong mineral backbone to complement the richness. The blend is a huge production wine, some 68,00 cases made, so this should be easy to find. (Best 2015-2022) - November, 2015 (OB)
