1990 Crusted Port

Wine Society Bottling

A typical crusted port has a power complexity similar to a vintage port with sweet, rich, spicy red and black fruit harmoniously integrated. Crusted ports rather than a product from a single vintage are a blend from various years. Crusted is made in a similar way to vintage port however since this is a blend, the vintage year is not allowed to be prominent on the label. The vintage appearing on the label refers to the bottling date instead.

Cabernet, 1990

Quinta do Poço do Lobo

Caves S. Joao, established in 1920, became a dominant force in Portuguese wine making in the early 20th century with their houses Porta dos Cavaleiros in Dao and Frei Joao in Bairrada.
