The 2018 Tinto 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. It comes in at 14.5% alcohol. This was just bottled in December. Elegant and balanced, this shows good fruit, ripe tannins, freshness and an easygoing demeanor. It doesn't have a lot of flesh, but it certainly isn't thin. It tastes great. It drinks nicely as a house pour and should hold reasonably well - not that it needs to be held long, or necessarily should be. This is Crasto's workhorse red - there were 240,000 bottles produced from vines over 20 years in age. Drink: 2020-2028. Score - 88. (Mark Squires, robertparker.com, Feb. 28, 2020)
