D.

Frasqueira (Portuguese for vintage) is a term used for Vintage Madeiras that have been aged for at least 20 years in casks before bottling. Colheita (meaning harvest) Port is an aged single vintage Tawny Port. Crusted Port is a Port bottled unfiltered and thus there is a lot of sediment (crust) in the bottle. And LBV stands for Late Bottled Vintage Port, a type of aged Port that is popular in restaurants.
