Ramos Pinto Vintage Port 2000
Wine EnthusiastShowing slightly better than it did a year ago when last reviewed, the 2000 boasts sweet plum fruit, ample earthiness and refined spice flavors. As vintage Ports go, it's not the biggest or most concentrated, but shows a fine sense of harmony and balance.
Wine AdvocateThis seductive, sexy, accessible, forward vintage port boasts a dense purple color as well as copious quantities of jammy red and black fruits intermixed with smoke, earth, and licorice. Additional definition and firmness should emerge with time in the bottle. Sweet, layered, and full-bodied, it will be at its finest between 2007-2020.
Wine SpectatorPretty young Port. Aromas of crushed berries and orange peel, with a hint of fresh herbs. Full-bodied, slightly sweet, with plenty of ripe fruit and firm tannins. Medium finish. Better than from barrel. Best after 2007.
