Roriz

The only classic variety of the Douro not indigenous to Portugal, Tinta Roriz is known in Spain, its birthplace, as Tempranillo. The name, from "temprana," or "early," refers to its trait of ripening early. Of the top varietals, Tinta Roriz is the most variable in in quality. High in vigor, moderate in productivity and highly resistant to heat and aridity, it grows best on hot, dry south-facing schist slopes, away from water, with shelter from wind. Such siting helps curb the vine’s vigor and also helps it avoid rot, to which it is susceptible. The Tinta Roriz produces thick-skinned, deeply-colored grapes not too high in acidity which yield masculine wines of firm tannic structure, excellent complexity and distinctive resiny fragrance. It constitutes 12.1% of plantings in the Douro Valley, the second most prevalent vine. Alternate Names: Tempranillo; Aragonez; possibly the Valdepeñas of California – Description from WineFueled

    Write your review here, and rate the wine from 1 to 5 glasses above.clear, deep garnet red Spiced figs instantly evoke robitussin, yet the unripe strawberry fruit on the palate-doesnt echo nose at all. Reminds me of a washed up comedian who you can tell used to be good, but has just run out of steam. It has a decent finish, but no comlexity and ... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    For me this is a Benchmark in Portuguese wines, maybe the best wine in it's price range.A Dark collored red with a "shy" aroma, that develops to an enormous bouquet, elegant, with some hints of oak mixed with very rich and ripe fruit.Magnificent on the mouth, an explosion of red fruits and spices with well rounded tannins and a surprisingly fres...

  • Conceito Contraste 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Beautiful velvet purple-red in the glass. The nose hides from you, unless you really stick it in. Notes of blackberries, blueberries and slight port-like scent. Chewy tannins, which mask the 13.5% alcohol - nicely balanced with fresh berries bursting into your mouth, touches of oak and a nice finish doused with dark chocolate. Would match well w...

  • Sandeman Founders Reserve Port Sandeman Foundrs Reserve NV

    Snoothrank:

    The smell of the wine is buried under a think blanket of isopropyl alcohol. Am I about to get a shot? Oh no! Ah but there it is.. Mmmm chocolate. Dark dark cherry.
