91 POINTS, YEAR’S BEST TAWNY PORTS
December 2019, Joshua Greene
“Bom Retiro is a historic property on the south side of the Douro River canyon, across the river from Pinhão. It has been owned by Ramos Pinto since 1919 and provides the fruit for this Tawny. The wine’s earthy honey scent suggests its supple textures, while there’s brightness to its orange marmalade flavors, the lasting impression firm, juicy and clean.”

“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.”

“Old gold in color, this is the most complete style of aged tawny. The long barrel aging (in old barrels) has given concentration, a touch of oxidation and a wonderful spicy character. It is rich, luscious and beautifully ready to drink.”
