It's only wine but I like it
It's only wine but I like it

Yet again this vintage, this unoaked red from Quinta do Crasto tastes more like a $20+ wine than a $15 wine. Loaded with dark fruit, this has depth and structure well beyond a wine at this price pont. I actually prefer this to the far more expensive Old Vines curvee, as there is no oak here to interefere with the fine expression of fruit. A no-brainer multiple purchase. For drinking now or holding 3-5 years.
