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

SKU #1073155 98 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Resplendent with its pale amber-tawny hue and just a glint of orange; appetising savoury aromas of lightly toasted almonds and slightly caramelised, mellifluous fruit; fine and delicate, super-suave with that beautifully melded savoury-sweet fruit (the hallmark of great tawny) and an incredibly long, fresh, elegant finish. Finely and perfectly poised. (RM) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

Outer quote mark Bom Retiro is Ramos Pinto’s historic home on the south bank of the Douro, just downstream from Pinhão. Its steep, terraced hills rising high above the river grow the fruit for this Tawny: touriga nacional, touriga franca, tinta roriz, tinta barroca and tinto cão. Aged into a dark, rich wine at the cusp of maturity, the fruit still bristles with energy, hinting at fresh figs and oranges, while mature tones lend the velvet texture of plums baked to perfection. The flavors last, with a spicy zing of acidity deliciously integrated into the fruit. Classical. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The NV RP 20 Year Old Tawny Port Quinta do Bom Retiro is a single-quinta Tawny coming in with 126 grams of residual sugar and a bar-top cork. It was bottled in February 2020. This seems pretty much on track for what the brand normally shows, but it is especially enticing right now. It shows power, depth and spice. There are classic hints of caramel and a fresh feel. That wonderful freshness is what really sells this elegant Tawny and makes it irresistible. It is impeccably balanced. The lift to the fruit gives this some extra juiciness on the bright finish.

Outer quote mark This quinta, in the heart of the Douro Valley vineyards, has produced an elegant Port, ripe and finely balanced. Its opulent texture gives it a smooth feel, lifted by the dried fruit, spice and freshened by acidity. This is a delicious wine to drink now. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tightly wound, this delivers a wiry, focused beam of dried peach, date, green tea, almond husk and bergamot notes. Long, racy finish has excellent cut. (JM) Inner quote mark (2/2021)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Reddish tawny. Lovely jewelly fruit on the nose. Served cool it is most refreshing with a good amalgam of fruit and rancio. Quite a success! Inner quote mark (11/2022)

Tawnies are not an afterthought at Ramos Pinto, and casks going into this wine aren't something that one would typically see declassified into a 20-year blend. This is a single-quinta wine of fine terroir which displays surprising freshness and fruit at 20 years old. The wine is a noticeable step up from producers that are famous for their vintage ports and now put their best tawny casks into single-vintage colheita bottlings. This is a flagship wine with Ramos Pinto's best grapes and it isn't to be sold short.
