Wine Spectator's Top 100 - #03

Quinta do Crasto
Douro Reserva Old Vines 2005

95 points / $40
1,500 cases imported
Portugal

This red from Portugal's Douro River Valley is at the crest of the new wave of high-quality table wines issuing from the historic heartland of Port. Up to 30 different grape varieties from old-vine vineyards compose this refined blend. Some of the grapes are foot-trodden in lagares during initial fermentation, and the wine is then aged 18 months in French (85 percent) and American oak. It is neither fined nor filtered before bottling. The winemaking team includes Manuel Lobo, Dominic Morris and Tomás Roquette.
