Quinta do Crasto Late Bottled Vintage Port 2014


The 2014 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a field blend with 107 grams of residual sugar. It is a traditional, unfiltered LBV bottled in February 2019 with a long cork. There were 17,000 bottles produced, plus 6,000 half bottles, from vines with an average age over 60 years old. This isn’t the most concentrated LBV this year, but the flavors are classic and the structure is reasonable – indeed, the structure is notably better than the fruit. Crasto has a fine reputation for LBVs, and at this price level, this is a very respectable offering in this rather difficult vintage. You can drink this now. It won’t age as well as some of Crasto’s big stars, but it can easily hold for 15+ years or so. Drink date: 2019-2030. Score – 89. (Mark Squires, robertparker.com, July 11, 2019)
