Wine – 2004 Flor de Crasto – Douro Vinho Tinto Tinta Roriz

02082007.jpgOver the years I’ve come to love the Quinta do Crasto Douro, as well as their superb ports, so when I saw this I had to give it a try.

Given the fact the price of their Douro has gotten a little steep, this is a nice value option for something a little different.

It is has dry, floral nose with some strawberry and bit of the nice earthiness of a standard douro. This was great afternoon sipper while transcribing the Zap notes and preparing dinner.

If you‘re in the mood for a light and approachable wine this is a really nice option in terms of value and variety.

    I don’t know about those 4 stars, Graham. Okay, it’s cheap but cherry coke is too and the nose on this wine reminds me of the latter.
