"This joint venture between the Roquette family of Quinta do Crasto and the Cazes family of Chateau Lynch- Bages in Bordeaux, is a stunning evocation of the schist soils of the Douro. It is uncompromising, with firm, dark tannins. In a classic Bordeaux way, it is still young, the structure dominant and impressive. "
Wine Spectator 90
"Big and ripe, with dense flavors of mocha, espresso and dark plum. Bittersweet chocolate extends on the intense, spicy finish. Best from 2010 through 2013. 2,500 cases made."
