Ramos Pinto Collector Port

SKU #1012652 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Dark and stern, leaning more to figs and dried plums than sweet red fruits, this very expressive and intense Reserva has unusual power for a Ruby Reserva and plenty of concentration for the category. One or two may have been its equal, but there was no wine in this report that showed better after being held for another two days. At that point, it still showed surprising power and coated the palate. As time went on, when a lot of the Reserves in this report fell off, this just got better. The gripping finish, even two days later, beautiful fruit and serious demeanor made it seem pretty fine. It has impressive color as well, reminiscent of Vintage Port. The complexity in the flavor profile added a key bit of distinction—it has a certain maturity to it that is appealing. The texture was velvety and sensual. Five days later, it was still intriguing and I couldn't say that about many of them this issue. (MS) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Full, rich and on the dry side, this is loaded with ripe berry flavors, and it has a core of firm tannins and a touch of acidity. It finishes dry. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lots of fresh crushed dark plum, chocolate and dark cherry flavors are firm and supported by fresh acidity. The finish is lively, with good grip. (MW) Inner quote mark (6/2012)

K&L Notes

Ramos Pinto's non-vintage ruby is a blend of vintages aged in wood for six years or so, where it develops into a fruity, but rounded effort that offers unbelievable pleasure for the buck. Aromas include fig jam and black pepper. On the palate it is soft and juicy with layers of fruit and structure. Holds up very well once opened, too. But we can't say it will last long in your cupboard.
