Crasto Vintage 1985

Since 1615 that Quinta do Crasto is known by its existence being awarded as feitoria in 1761. We can see some granitic markers throughout the estate which symbolize the original demarcation since 1758. In the beginning of the XX century, Constantino de Almeida, great grandfather of the actual owners, bought the estate and founded a Port wine house known for their labels as “Constantino’s”. Nevertheless, in 1994 they began to produce still wines and they’ve been doing their best belonging also to Douro Boys partnership.

Concerning this Vintage Port from 1985, we can see that it has a developed ruby color with brownish hints. Pine needles, sour cherry, spices and ripe red fruit aromas. In the mouth we can feel that’s perfect to drink with elegance and persistence. Altough it isn’t my kind of vintage.
