Ramos Pinto 20 Year Tawny Port Quinto do Bom Retiro
Ramos Pinto 20 Year Tawny Port Quinto do Bom Retiro
Ramos Pinto 20 Year Tawny Port Quinto do Bom Retiro

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. Wines are easy to match when they are young but as they grow older, the matching process becomes more difficult. Greater knowledge and fine tuning from both sides is required so that, over time, a perfect and long-lasting harmony is achieved. Made from wines of the Quinta de Bom Retiro, this is a blend with an average age of 20 years, an adult and sophisticated tawny.

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. Fruit aromas: grapefruit, apricot, almond, hazelnut and cocoa bean. Wood aromas: vanilla, old Port wine casks and phenol. Roasted aromas: cinnamon, caramel, coffee. Ethereal aromas: stearin and iodine. 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.


Decanter - 98 Points
"From a single estate where a quarter of the wines are more than 80 years old: soft and seamless, boasting waves of dates, dried figs, brazil nuts and toasted almonds. Suave silky texture and wonderful savoury-sweet length. Supremely good."

Wine Spectator - 92 Points
"A plush and creamy style, with flavors of dried fig, butterscotch and salted almond, showing plenty of grip. Finishes firm, presenting notes of dried ginger and savory."

Wine Enthusiast - 92 Points
"At 20 years, aged tawnies bear fruit and concentrated wood flavors, plus dry acidity. This is rich and poised, and it has a fine, full finish. Editor's Choice"

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 92 Points
"The NV Rp 20 Year Old Tawny Port Quinta do Bom Retiro is a single-quinta tawny coming in with 130 grams of residual sugar and a bar-top cork. It was bottled in May 2018. The sugar level is a little higher this year than on the last one I saw, and this is on the sweet side on opening. This finishes, predictably, with a sweet edge at that point, but it also has a somewhat sharp edge because the spirits are a bit noticeable early on, not completely covered up by the sugar. This and the last release that I saw both had some brandy-nuanced overtones on opening and release, but both improved over a couple of days. They were just a bit disjointed on opening."
