This Vintage Port is bottled unfiltered after maturing for two years in large Portuguese oak vats.

When young they are usually a very dark ruby in colour almost opaque with intense aromas of very ripe fruit.

Combining in highly complex wines that have great longevity.

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

Wine Spectator (WS) : 95 Points (2015)
This is really engaging, with a mix of boysenberry, açaí berry and blackberry fruit that has lots of energy, carried by brambly grip and backed by licorice snap, spearmint and ganache notes on the finish. Best from 2028 through 2045. 1,500 cases made.

Robert Parker (RP) : 94 Points (2015)
The 2015 Vintage Port is a field blend from old vines (60+ years) aged for two years in neutral Portuguese tonels. It comes in at 105 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is a declared VP for Crasto and it looks very fine—and quite a bargain. It shows how fine the quality of fruit on 2015s can be. They may not always be the biggest and deepest, but they do okay in that regard, plus they are fresh and simply delicious. This excels as well with its structure and finish. Dry and serious, yet gloriously tasty, this is impressive and I liked it a lot. Winemaker Manuel Lobo later said that he thought it was his best VP yet at Crasto. He may be right. It should hold for decades and will certainly improve notably with 10 to 15 years or so in the cellar, even though this should be approachable on the early side. The freshness and controlled power will help preserve it. This is a terrific VP from Crasto.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2015)
The wine has a jammy character that gives it concentration. It is sweet although with enough acidity. The blackberry jelly flavors are firmed out with some fine tannins, certainly plenty to promise good aging. Drink from 2025.
