Quinta do Crasto D.O.C. 2011 Douro Red Wine, $12.74-$15.99, 87 points, appeared a shiraz purple/red (opaque at the core) with a broad clear circumferential rim.
First whiff was sweet red cherry, with developing toast, earth, and petrol notes.
Barely medium bodied with bright acidity and mild to moderate tannin carried will-o-wisp strawberry and pomegranate flavors into a long finish of spice, heat (14.5% alcohol), and eucalyptus.
