A powerful dense wine that is rich and firmly structured, so it has big bold black fruit flavors that are still firmly embedded in dark tannins. It is a fine complex wine, the fruit of two of Ramos-Pinto's quintas in the Douro Superior. Keep this wine until 2018 at least. Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015, this brand was the among the first Douro still wines.

All about gentleness and harmony, this vintage of DQ Reserva shows the figgy ripeness of fruit from Ervamoira, a riverside vineyard near Foz Coa in the Douro Superior, balanced by fresher notes of purple plums, reflecting fruit from the cooler, high elevations of Bons Ares. It’s meaty and lusciously rich, integrating oak tannins into a reserved and elegant lasting impression.

Not showing quite the density of some, it still has gorgeous structure and beautiful fruit. It is a very nice effort in a difficult vintage, but it is showing very little now except its power. Lots of aeration allowed, this might be a bit more interesting, but all you can do with this just now is cellar it. At the moment, it doesn't quite have the concentration of some of the stars here, but they didn't seem quite as concentrated when young, either. This will be released in mid-2016. - Mark Squires

Ripe and juicy, with concentrated flavors of Asian spice, dark plum and forest floor, supported by fresh acidity and medium-grained tannins. The creamy finish is long and rich. Drink now through 2020. – KM

Inky and almost black in color, this Douro release has a nose of black and blue fruit, dried violets, a trace of orange zest and a scorched earth minerality.

Inky and almost black in color, this Douro release has a nose of black and blue fruit, dried violets, a trace of orange zest and a scorched earth minerality. Pleasantly full bodied on the palate, the wine’s attack opens with the baked fruit nuanced with hints of tobacco. The structure is balanced with silky tannins and a solid acidic spice while the finish is long. This wine is nice now but could be aged for about 8-10 years if desired. Pair smoked meats and charcuterie.
