Ramos Pinto "Quinta do Bom Retiro" 20 Year Old Tawny Port

SKU #1073155 98 points Decanter

 From a single estate where a quarter of the vines are more than 80 years old: soft and seamless, boasting waves of dates, dried figs, brazil nuts and toasted almonds. Suave silky texture and wonderful savoury- sweet length. Supremely good. (RM)  (11/2017)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Quinta Do Bom Retiro RP 20 Year Old Tawny Port has been seen before, but this is the new 2015 bottling. It comes in with 122 grams per liter of residual sugar. It seems even more interesting now, holding its own very well against all comers in my "20" tastings this issue, and adding concentration of fruit and aromatics compared to RP's lovely 10 Year Tawny (also reviewed this issue). Showing fine weight, concentration and increasing complexity of flavor over a week or so, it drank rather well, sometimes brilliantly. Its beautiful balance also makes it easy to approach; it does everything well and it has a lot of old Tawny flavors for a 20. It was certainly one of my favorite 20s in this report. This comes with a bar top cork. (MS)  (12/2015)

 0 Dark ruby with tawny gold highlights, this intense wine comes from Ramos-Pinto's Bom Retiro estate. It is dried raisins, toffee with beautifully integrated spirit and acidity. It's a rich wine, with some sweetness that is freshened with the final acidity. (RV)  (6/2016)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Open-knit and forward in feel, with juicy fig bread, steeped plum and toasted raisin notes backed by singed sesame and toffee accents on the finish. (JM)  (11/2017)

Country:

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.
Sub-Region:

Port

- Port is a fortified wine made by stopping the fermentation with brandy. The result is a heavy sweet wine, most often red, that is dense, rich and high in alcohol. Port is made all over the world with some great results in Australia and South Africa, but the most famous of these dessert wines come from Portugal. The great port houses (or lodges) are located along the Duoro River on the steep slate slopes high above the valley floor. There are several styles of port, including Ruby, Tawny, Vintage Character, Late Bottle Vintage, Colheita, and Single Quinta. Vintage ports are made in special years that the houses declare.
