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

SKU #1073155 94 points Wine & Spirits

 This glossy wine sustains a delicate freshness in its floral fruit. That bright note of tart strawberries and jasmine holds to springtime, while the figgier richness and detailed tannins provide a structure that feels warm and autumnal. It’s a delicious contrast, the elements finely interwoven, a satisfying tawny to extend a holiday meal.  (12/2014)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 It comes in at 122.3 grams per liter of residual sugar and was aged in wood of varying sizes and types (Portuguese and French oak, chestnut and cherry tree). Average in concentration, this is a friendly 20-year-old that focuses on presenting a bright, sunny demeanor. Don't misunderstand, because it still is classic in its flavor profile and particularly after it settled in and was open a few days, it showed off its beautiful, old tawny nuances. It leans more, though, to lively and cheerful than the brooding and darker flavors of treacle, seared bitter chocolate and molasses. It has a wonderfully fresh feel to it and nice viscosity. Call it somewhere in between the Warre Otima and the Vallado 20 in this issue as it provides something for everyone. The crisp finish with nice tension allows the flavors to linger respectably as it airs. (MS)  (2/2015)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 This balances dried fruits and rich red berries with toast and a layers of dryness from the wood aging. It is opulent, generous and well balanced.  (6/2015)

Wine Spectator

 Pepper details accent the flavors of dried berry and cherry, which carry plenty of rich, spicy notes. The lively finish offers hints of dried mint.  (12/2014)

- 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. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.


- 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.
