Ramos Pinto Quinta Do Bom Retiro 20 Year Old Tawny NV
A top class producer of ruby port, tawny port and table wines. Ramos was purchased by Louis Roederer in 1990 and is built (like the Champagne) on quality. Crucially Ramos is only available through independent wine merchants and the on-trade. Made from a selection of several plots from one of the oldest vineyards in the Douro region, the Quinta do Bom Retiro. It is a wine created from many different plots. This 'Quinta do Bom-Retiro' has a tawny colour with a yellow halo that signifies an advanced stage of maturity. This is the genuine colour of a 20 year-old cask-aged wine. It has a warm red colour with a slight orange tone at the bottom of the glass. A lively aroma with a velvety texture . Smooth and dry in the mouth, complemented by a rich and generous persistence of flavour. A fine and delicious attack. The elegance of the first contact with the palate is maintained through a complex sequence of ripe and dried fruits and nuts in a fresh and liquorice-like harmony. Delicious as an aperitif or following an evening meal. It can also accompany chocolate, cheeses and cream-based desserts or desserts that are not overly sweet. It goes very well with dry fruit and nuts, nut cakes and Swiss rolls.
This port house was founded in 1880 by Adriano Ramos Pinto and produce a range of table wines and ports. The firm was bought by the Roederer Champagne group in 1990. Ramos Pinto also own an art gallery and museum in the town
