Located on the right bank of the Douro River, between the towns of Régua and Pinhão, Quinta do Crasto is a property of 130 hectares, 70 of which are planted with vines. Nestled on a privileged location in the Douro Demarcated Region, Quinta do Crasto has belonged to the family of Leonor and Jorge Roquette for over a century and like all the great properties of the Douro it dates back to ancient times - the name "Crasto" is derived from the Latin word "castrum",… Read more

Robert Parker (RP) : 89 Points (2014)
The 2014 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a field blend with 107 grams of residual sugar. It is a traditional, unfiltered LBV bottled in February 2019 with a long cork. There were 17,000 bottles produced, plus 6,000 half bottles, from vines with an average age over 60 years old. This isn't the most concentrated LBV this year, but the flavors are classic and the structure is reasonable—indeed, the structure is notably better than the fruit. Crasto has a fine reputation for LBVs, and at this price level, this is a very respectable offering in this rather difficult vintage. You can drink this now. It won't age as well as some of Crasto's big stars, but it can easily hold for 15+ years or so.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 93 Points (2011)
Vibrant from the color straight through the blueberry-skin tannins, this is brisk and almost blunt in its youthful power, hitting hard on schist flavors, with tannins that are slow to relent. Packed with dark berry fruit, this has the substance and muscular power of many full-on declared vintages. It’s bottled with a driven cork and designed to age.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2011)
This has a floral aroma, with flavors of raspberry, dark cherry and chocolate, layered with rich, spicy notes. Hints of pepper show on the finish, which offers moderate grip. Drink now through 2020.
