The Ramos Pinto 30-Year old Tawny is amber colored with orange and garnet tones. The delicate green highlights of the meniscus are characteristic of old cask-aged wines, and illustrate the quality and advanced age of this fine port.
This complex, perfectly balanced port shows rich aromas of dried fruit and vanilla. Agitate the glass and spice aromas of cinnamon and cocoa are liberated. In the mouth, the attack is fresh, fine and delicate. Ripe, dried fruit softly merges with almond and hazelnut, culminating in vanilla flavors which linger gracefully on the palate.
This sings from the glass with sweet spice, marmalade, molasses, clove, nutty, toffee, caramel and balsamic perfume. A very complex array of flavors, including roasted coffee, scorched earth, fig and walnut. A distinctive style, done very well. Highly impressive. Decanter – 94
