The 2003 Ramos Pinto Vintage Porto is intense mauve in color and very opaque. Complex aromas combine red fruits, spices, and hints of dark chocolate and pepper. It is well structured on the palate and extremely full-bodied, with lively, ripe fruit and vigorous tannins giving it a great capacity for aging. Finally, it demonstrates a long-lasting aftertaste and an intense finish.
Appellation: Douro DOC

"Wonderful aromas of crushed blackberries and currants. Full-bodied, with round, ripe tannins and fabulously rich fruit. Medium sweet and gripping. Ramos-Pinto's best ever. Best after 2014. 1,625 cases made." -JS, 4/30/06

"The wine is big, full, opulent and super-ripe. But the tannins are also there, giving a dark, brooding edge, which comes through powerfully on the finish. This is the best vintage yet from this Roederer-owned house. Imported by Maisons Marques & Domaines USA." -RV, 11/1/05
