Quinta de la Rosa Red Blend Douro 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Noten von Veilchen, Orangenblüte und Lavendel, später Brombeere, Holunder und Kräuter wie Thymian und Estragon zeugen von einem charaktervollen, finessenreichen Wein. Am Gaumen stellt man eine erfreuliche Frische und Eleganz fest, die sich mit viel Saftigkeit und im intensiven Geschmack nach Amarenakirschen, Johannisbeeren sowie Minze und Zitronenzeste ausdrückt.

The Bergqvist family have been making port since 1815. Quinta de la Rosa was given as a christening present for Claire Feuheerd, Sophia's grandmother, in 1906. The family port shipping company, Feueheerd, was sold in the 1930s but La Rosa was kept and run by Sophia's grandmother, Claire. In 1988 Sophia and her father, Tim Bergqvist, decided to restart the family business and launched Quinta de la Rosa as a top quality port producer onto the market place. Starting in the early 1990s, the Bergqvist family were one of the pioneers in taking red wine production in the Douro region seriously. Quinta de la Rosa's red wine has won many accolades in the press and is sold in many prestigious restaurants and wine stores around the world. For the last 5 years, the Bergqvist family has also been making their Vale da Clara wine, buying in carefully selected grapes from nearby properties. The wine differs distinctly from the La Rosa wine produced - it has more fruit and less oak flavors. Read less

Dark and fruity on the nose with luscious dark chocolate accents and lovely smoke, dried herb and toasted spice top notes. This enters the mouth with a certain elegance, delivering rich fruit flavors that are fresh and precise with layers of leather, dried herb and mineral accents adding complexity. The tannins here are ripe and polished, making this quite smooth with enough acidity to keep things perky. The finish is long and complex with tobacco, chocolate and spice notes. A touch of black pepper accents the wild plum and dried cherry fruit. This is lovely and well put together with a slightly modern feel, but the flavors are firmly rooted in the Old World. This should continue to improve in the cellar for another 2-5 years. 91pts

Plum and cigar notes on the nose, as well as vanilla and herbal tones. The oak qualities are somewhat smokey. The attack shows strong red fruit, with strawberry mid-palate and into the finish.

This is strawberryish on the nose, with maybe a little leather and meatyness. Oaky smelling. Nice balance between acid and tannin. Fruity tasting with a little heat on the back end. Would go nicely with food, I think.

Very intense aromatic fruit with lots of violet, cherry jam and herbaceous undertones. Soft and seductive on the palate, making it more approachable than reserves from previous years.

Tiefe purpurrote Farbe. Intensiv fruchtige Nase mit feinwürzigen Aromen und dezenter Vanillenote. Am Gaumen bestätigt sich die Frucht, ist weich und vollmundig. Das Finale ist beeindruckend und lang. Ein schöner ausgewogener Wein, mit viel Kraft!

Leuchtend rote Farbe mit purpurfarbenen Schimmern. Die Nase nimmt deutliche Aromen von Kirschen und roten Beerenfrüchten sowie verhaltene von Schokolade und Eiche wahr. Am Gaumen entfalten sich kräftig gewürzte Fruchtnoten, währenddessen sich die Säure optimal integriert. Rundum ein Wein von finessereicher Struktur.
