90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2017 Tinto, in bottle about four months when first seen, is a blend of Tinta Roriz (30%), Touriga Franca (25%), Touriga Nacional (35%) and Tinta Barroca (10%). About 15% (a deliberate increase from what used to be a nominal 5%) of the blend was aged in second use French oak for six months, the rest in tank. Crasto's idea with the increase in oak going forward is to change the wine's texture a bit and add a bit of gravitas. This has come together really well since last seen, fleshing out, showing a bit more power and (most importantly) vivid flavor. I'm not sure if this will hold serve throughout its useful life, but at the moment, it is worth leaning up on this succulent but fresh Tinto. It comes in at 14% alcohol."
"Blend of the usual Douro grape suspects.
Bright crimson. Very smooth, polished nose hints at hidden depths. Great balance and approachability. This may not be their most ambitious wine but it’s a real star for current and early future drinking. VGV 16.5/20 points."
Good festive buys 2019 – reds
"Portugal is one of the world’s most exciting sources of distinctive reds and, increasingly, whites with port country, the Douro valley, leading the way."
Vinous Reverie Notes
This wine is made from traditional Douro red grape varieties: Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca and Touriga Franca. It is produced to be a fresh, fruity, easy-to-drink wine. Deep ruby in color with very ripe red fruit aromas. Very fruity on the palate, with good structure and light tannins which make it a very pleasant wine.
