Quinta do Crasto Reserva Old Vines shows complex aromas, with well-integrated fruit and oak notes and a hint of spice. Intense and deep on the palate, it is well balanced by the firm structure of the tannins and delivers a long and lingering finish. It is ideal to accompany hearty meat and game dishes. Since it is bottled unfiltered, some sediment may form during bottle ageing.

A blend of 30 grape varieties from vines at least 70 years old, this wine boasts denisty and a firm structure. It is powered by tannins, dark black-fruit flavors and great concentration, and is an impressive wine that needs time. Drink from 2022.

Seamless flavors of sandalwood, steeped cherry, espresso and boysenberry are packed into this brooding red, with undertones of slate, savory spice, hoisin sauce and anise that gain traction on the plush, lengthy finish. Impressive energy and concentration. Drink now through 2028. 700 cases imported.
