The 2009 Flor de Crasto is Crasto’s relatively new entry level wine. Intended to be easy drinking, it is rather light, with a sweet tinge, becoming more interesting with 15 minutes of air as the sweetness integrates a bit. This is the type of wine that you take for what it is. You can drink it as an easy sipper, and if you chill it down to 60 or so, that would be good. Drink it young and fresh; it is at peak now and if it goes anywhere in the next couple of years, it will be down. Drink now-2013. Crasto is one of the Douro’s most prominent estates, typically one of its leaders. With a beautiful Quinta and view – easier to get to by boat, more interesting to get to by car – it justly attracts a lot of attention. The releases this year, 2009s, have plenty to offer, but I was not entirely convinced by all of the upper level wines. Perhaps time will tell another story as they calm down and settle down.Importer: Broadbent Selections, San Francisco, Ca.; (415) 931-1725.
