Quinta do Crasto Tinto 2011

Douro - Portugal

I just tasted this yesterday at the Portugal tasting here in Vancouver. I know Portuguese wines are daunting (they freak me out too) so I won't even get into the 4 grapes in this blend. But be adventurous this weekend and grab this bottle!

It's raspberries and roses with a velvet and elegant finish! Very smooth! It's available for $19.99 (call store ahead of time to confirm availability and price).

Ok, for those dying to know the grapes, here they are: Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional.
