Quinta do Crasto Late Bottled Vintage Port 2013
|Brand||Quinta do Crasto|
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a field blend with 116 grams of residual sugar. It is a traditional, unfiltered LBV bottled in June 2017 with a long cork. This is elegance with deceptive power. Focused and tight, this is a bit closed just now, but you can already see how expressive the fruit will become with time. The tannins give fine support to the fruit, but they are ripe enough to allow you to dive in early. They will also allow this to age beautifully. This is a pretty fine LBV-Crasto doesn't make bad ones. It is tight enough so that it is worth being a little conservative in evaluation just now, but it should evolve well in the cellar. Now, look at that price. Traditionally styled LBVs are the best value in Port. This is more interesting than some Vintage Ports in this report. There were 49,427 bottles produced, plus 6,603 half bottles. Drink Date: 2019-2038.
