Caramelised demerara sugar aromas lead to nicely defined, rich, spicy flavours of dried fruit and caramel, with a little Douro bake and spirit on the lengthy finish. (panel)
The NV Quinta da Ervamoira Tawny RP 10 Year Old Port comes in at 106 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is the new 2015 bottling. Beautifully focused and balanced, this has fine mid-palate weight for the category and a complex medley of concentrated flavors on the finish. Quite gripping, it is beautifully done and rather impressive, while always remaining graceful and impeccably balanced. There is very respectable tension on the finish, too, that enlivens the wine. Taste this in isolation and you'll think my score is pretty stingy, but remember that there does need to be some headroom when we step up to the long-aged Tawny treasures. This may have been my favorite 10 Year Tawny this issue. (MS)
Pretty, with sandalwood, warm raisin and toffee hints weaving around a core of gently mulled cherry and plum fruit flavors. The sandalwood edge extends through the stylish finish. (JM)
In 1974, Ramos Pinto purchased this property in the far-eastern Douro Superior, where João Nicolau de Almeida researched what would become the five recommended varieties for planting in the Douro. Four of those varieties—touriga nacional, touriga franca, tinta roriz and tinta barroca—produce this single-quinta Tawny, a wine that shows the arid heat of the region in its notes of figs and pear liqueur. With its tart apple acidity and walnut-like tannins providing focus and structure, it’s a clean and simple pleasure for a cheese plate.
Deep tawny colour. Figs and dried fruit to the fore in the aroma, the same flavour on the palate but with notable freshness – more citrus. Classic Ervamoira style. Rich and full flavoured on the finish but the alcohol is well integrated. (JH) 16.5/20
This has quite a bite with acidity and a strong cut of spirit. Flavors of dried raisins and sultana put it on the dry side of aged tawny. At the end, spice and the wood aging dominate this austere wine. (RV)
