Romariz Late Bottle Vintage Port 2012

Romariz Late Bottle Vintage Port  has been aged aged in oak for 5 years. Fruity and suave aromas. A delicate softness and goes particularly well with nuts, almonds and cheese.


Review:

"Dark ruby red. Restrained aromas of sweet, dark red fruit with good richness and density on a firmly structured palate. Layered, expressive flavors of plums and dried cherries with notes of fruitcake, tobacco and leather. Fine firm tannins balance the wine’s natural sweetness. Aged 5 years in oak. Pair with strongly flavored, hard cheeses."

Romariz Vintage Port 2007 (half bottle)

Flowering in the Duoro occurred in the last 10 days of May. The weather conditions provided for a perfect flowering season. The Romariz Vintage Port 2003 yielded wines of great color and supple tannins, with a vintage stamp being evident in most wines. Production: 8,000 cases. "Another bright and fruity young Vintage Port with plum, grape and blackberry aromas with just a hint of stems. Serious nose here. Full-bodied, with soft, round tannins and a long, caressing finish. A beauty." - J.S., Wine Spectator, 89-91 pts "Bright dark ruby. Deep, perfumed aromas of cassis, licorice, violet and minerals. Lush and high-toned in the mouth but with very good vinosity and spine. Lovely fruit-driven flavors of black cherry, blackberry and dark chocolate. Little sign of the roasted side of 2003. Not hugely concentrated but suave, supple, minerally and sweet. Finishes with ripe tannins and very good spicy persistence. A very good showing. Accessible already but balanced for medium-term aging." - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, 89 pts

Romariz Vintage Port  (half-bottle) 2003


"Opaque ruby. A complex, beautifully structured wine from Europe’s hot summer of 2003. Lively spicy, toasted aromas and a ripe and generous palate with layers of rich, dense flavors of dark fruit, chocolate, tobacco, spice box and a hint of marmalade. Finishes dry and long with still firm tannins. A delicious Port that should be paired with Roquefort and other blue cheeses."

Product Description

Winemaking:
This delicious full-bodied Port is the product of an exceptional year in quality, aged four to six years in oak barrels, in our cellars Gaia. It is filtered before bottling to prevent the formation of deposits, getting ready to drink. The Romariz Late Bottled Vintage is characterized by its fruity aroma and velvety softness. It is particularly popular with cheese.

 

Grape Varieties:
Old Vines

Tasting Notes:
Fantastic bouquet, with aromas of ripe blackberry in cascade and red plum. A full mouth feel and engaging with very rich flavors of wild berries and juicy. Velvety soft but well structured. A wine deliciously plump and full, with good depth and a charming and intense ending.

Food Pairing:

The LBV is the perfect ending to any meal. There needs to be decanted and should be served in a cup not too small so you can fully appreciate its rich fruit. Goes well with strong cheeses, especially blues. It is also delicious with chocolate desserts or berries.

Winery: Romariz Port

The Romariz Port Estate
The port house of Romariz was founded in 1850 by Manoel (Manuel) da Rocha Romariz. Manoel was a descendant from a well known Oporto family.

Over the years, Romariz developed business dealings in Brazil and other Portuguese Colonies (Africa and China), and to a lesser extent England. Historically, Romariz was known for wood ports, like Colheitas (single vintage Tawnies) and in top years vintage ports.

In 1966, the Romariz family sold their brand and business to Guimaraens & Co. (who own Fonsecca) and the business continued on. Some years passed by and eventually Fonsecca and Taylor’s joined forces. Today, Fonsecca, Talyor and Romariz share the same winemaker and facility in Vila Nova de Gaia.

Today, Romariz offers a wide range of Ports: wood, vintage, LBV’s and Colheitas. Their main markets are Portugal, Denmark and France. All grapes come from region #2, Cima Corgo, the heart of the best growing area along the Douro River. Romariz being a “Portuguese” port firm, adheres to a rich warm style of port wines.
