Quinta do Crasto, Douro Reserva Old Vines 2009

Lovely berry fruit, violet, beetroot, earth and a generous lick of oak on the nose. It promises and delivers a velvety texture and has a well-covered tannin structure. It has lovely depth of flavour and just a hint of savoury oak. Elegant and linear. 17.5pts/20
