    May 14, 2018 - Decanted about 5 hours. Nose of licorice, dried plums and anise. This is now starting its transition to secondary notes, while still retaining some of those primary dark stone fruits as well. The soft tannins have not fully resolved yet and there is plenty of acidity to keep this really fresh and vibrant. Love the saddle leather, menthol, and tea leaves which show up on the moderately long spicy finish. Not fully mature yet, but none the less in a really nice spot at the moment.

    September 9, 2016 - Note: I use a rating scale for which 85 represents a very good wine.

    Looking back, I think this wine drank better earlier. Still a decent Port. If my sentence was to drink this every day, I am yours.

    Drank over a few days, opened up a bit over this time. My impression is similar to those of numerous others -- no great drama here, but nothing to scoff at. Nicely balanced, reasonable grip. Nothing out of line. I have one more and I am not worried about drinking it immediately.

    September 29, 2015 - 2015 FTLOP Havest Tour; 9/26/2015-10/3/2015 (Portugal): Bottled in 2008. Dark purple with bricking on the edges. Violet and some herbal notes on the nose. Unctuous mouthfeel. Blackberry and some dark plum on the palate. Grippy tannins on the mid-palate and some fresh acidity with a touch of bitterness on the finish.

    (Quinta do Crasto Late Bottled Vintage Port) Older vineyard lots make up the core of this blend, which is exclusively foot-trodden. After spending two years in cask, the wine is bottled unfiltered. A big, blackberry nose and palate lead to a long finish. This delicious Port will continue to age for a half-century.
