Wine Review: This slightly opaque and dark ruby colored blend from Portugal is very good. It opens with a fragrant blackberry and boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, smooth and rich. The flavor profile is a black olive, oak and blackberry blend. I also detected notes of steely minerality and hints of black cherry and soy sauce. The finish is dry and its flavors and well-managed tannins drift away nicely. This wine would pair well with grilled skirt steak fajitas. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: 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.
