O Produtor, tasting note published in October 1st 2016

Ruby coloured, deep and intense in tone. In the nose it has an elegant bouquet, with a predominance of ripe blackberry aroma balanced with a floral scent of lavender, violets, black pepper and balsamic notes. In the mouth it is fresh and seductive, with ripe fruits such as black plums and blackberries, notes of coffee and some hints of pine. Fresh, silky tannins accompany a long finish.

THE YEAR
2014 was atypical in comparison with the average of the last 30 years, with a mild winter, a warm spring and a particularly fresh summer. There was heavy rainfall, particularly in the months of January, February, July and September, and some climatic instability during the summer months, with thunderstorms during June and July. The moderate summer temperatures, with no heat waves, cool evenings and some rain showers gave the vines better maturation conditions and produced balanced musts (in terms of sugar/acidity) and with a good concentration of polyphenols. At Quinta do Bom Retiro the old vines were harvested almost at the end of the vintage, to take advantage of their adaptability to the year’s conditions. These vines produced a wine with intense colour, aromas of red berries, good structure and remarkable freshness. The other vineyards used in this blend produced equally intensely-coloured wines, although slightly fresher and more floral.
VINIFICATION

Ramos Pinto

Founded by Adriano Ramos Pinto in 1880, Casa Ramos Pinto rapidly became noted, at the time, for its innovative and enterprising strategy. Associated with quality bottled wines, it began operating on the Brazilian market in the early 20th century and quickly became responsible for half of the wine exported to South America, whilst it was still conquering generations of loyal customers in Portugal and Europe. These were the natural results of a forward thinking strategy, based on the modernisation of selection, batching and ageing circuits, the continuous wine research and the special care which Adriano Ramos Pinto devoted to the packaging and promotion of his wines.
The Ramos Pinto wines have therefore become a reference of quality.

From the very onset was born a unique collection of art objects, which are displayed today in the recently opened Museum Area – Casa Ramos Pinto.
The taste for culture instilled by Adriano Ramos Pinto in the working philosophy of Casa Ramos Pinto, is still alive today. In 1997, Casa Ramos Pinto created the Ervamoira On-Site Museum, aimed at environmental, oenological, archaeological and anthropological research of the Vale do Côa. Researchers also have at their disposal the Historical Archives in Vila Nova de Gaia, with a precious collection of documents on the production and export of wines from the late 19th century.

Aware that the quality of its wines were confined to the earth of the wine producing Douro, Casa Ramos Pinto meticulously studied this Demarcated Region, and eventually became the owners of a number of estates with very special characteristics. The objective was to ensure the control and quality of the whole production process. By perfecting its wines, Ramos Pinto created unique nectars with its own signature.

In 1990, Casa Ramos Pinto became part of the Roederer Group, whose history has identical characteristics. So, the qualities that gave fame to Casa Ramos Pinto took on an international dimension.
