The Ramos-Pinto Ruby Port has a much denser, redder color than the Tawny Port. A cornucopia of aromas greet the nose: cherry, blackberry, plum and raspberry. In the mouth it is fresh, vibrant and fruity; its attack is voluminous. The finish is persistent and aromatic, leaving the opulent fruit flavors reverberating on the palate.
Ramos-Pintoâs wood-aged ports are blended from several vintages and several quintas. Unlike the majority of port shippers, Ramos-Pinto owns almost all its own vineyards and controls grape quality from pruning to harvest.
This port is aged for three years in large chestnut casks. Contact with air is minimized to prevent oxidation and preserve the wineâs youthful ruby-red hue. This method of maturation also retains the wines deep fruit aromas and flavors, allowing it to be both velvety and youthful.
Considering the freshness, fruit and body of this wine, it should be consumed at room temperature. It is wonderful with cheese and sweet desserts that are not acidic.
