Ramos Pinto Adriano Red 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a young and fruit-forward red - translucent ruby in the glass. The nose came across as a little bland, but the palate is all candied cherry, berry, and plum fruits with just a hint of spice. Medium in body, with mild tannins that make for a somewhat sub-par finish. The oak is very subtle, but adds a touch of vanilla bean to the finish. Overall, the smooth mouthfeel, bright fruit flavors, and solid acidity make for a package that is quite enjoyable as a whole. Could serve as a spicier and more robust substitute for Beaujolais in many food pairings, or a great red for a summer evening

When walking in the chateau grounds it is obvious that its history goes further back than the 1855 classification. Citran is actually one of the Medoc's oldest seigneuries.

When walking in the chateau grounds it is obvious that its history goes further back than the 1855 classification. Citran is actually one of the Medoc's oldest seigneuries. Numerous Marquis de Donnissan, related to the family of France, reigned here for 600 years and only abandoned their chateau in the middle of the 18th century. Since then the chateau has gone through different phases. The various owners and the general financial crisis meant that the surface of the vineyards varied between 90 hectares to less than 4 hectares. The wine's quality reflected these fluctuations. Things got better in 1945 when the Miailhe brothers bought the property. Ten years ago a serious boost in the research for quality was set in motion. An accumulation of hard work and the huge investments initiated by the precedent Japanese owners brought Citran back towards the Haut Medoc elite. This transition was carried through under the leadership of the new and exacting owners. The Merlaut-Villars family is well known in the Medoc. They are true connoisseurs of wine and land. A symbol of this old cru Bourgeois wine's new-found youth is the arrival of young Céline Villars who will from now on represent the chateau. Read less

A dry red wine made of the four traditional Portuguese red wine grapes: Touriga Francesa, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca and Touriga Nacional. This varietal blend provides the wine with the structure, smooth tannins, finesse and floral notes on the nose.
