2016 Quinta de Roriz Vintage Port Reviews

94 Pointz James Suckling

“This is really impressive with fantastic aromas of ripe fruit and hints of earth. Some moss. Full-bodied and very sweet, yet the power and tannins are all here. A juicy and sweet wine that impresses.”

94 Pointz Wine Spectator

“This is packed with racy plum, açai, and blueberry reduction notes, all seamlessly layered with licorice snap and plum cake flavors. Shows a lovely graphite hint through the finish. Very focused and driven.”

93 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“This shows good fruit, but in a dry and stern fashion, at least at the moment. It does have a fairly high sugar level on paper. As it sat and aired, it became more powerful, showing plenty of intensity. Tight, tannic, and a little astringent, this lacks expressive fruit as yet, but its laser-like precision will serve it in good stead.”

93 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

“This finely perfumed wine has ripe tannins and rich fruit. It is full of berry flavors, supported by a dry structure and acidity, all well packaged into a complex texture that will allow the wine to age.” 

2011 Quinta de Roriz Vintage Port Reviews

95 Pointz Wine Spectator

“This shows a tight beam of cream and spice, focusing the lush flavors of dark cherry, blackberry, plum confit, and violet. The lilting finish presents fig and date notes to the dark chocolate accents.”

94 Pointz Wine Enthusiast 

“This structured, dark, brooding wine is closed up at this stage. It's a wine with serious tannins, powerful spiciness, and plenty of concentration. A dry core is surrounded by the fruit, hinting at potentially rich texture.”

93 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“There is a slight rancio character on the Quinta do Roriz, with raisin, a touch of prune and tobacco. The palate is smooth and voluptuous on the entry with layers of cassis, boysenberry, and salted licorice. It is very refined and focused with a mouth-lacquering, almost viscous finish. It has good potential, but needs to show more flair.”

2007 Quinta de Roriz Vintage Port Reviews

93 Pointz Wine & Spirits

“Scents of tar and beach rose develop in this firm and generously rich Port. The minerality reads as a smoky soil character and Sichuan spice. Tough tannins bounce back against all the sweet black plum fruit, creating a tight, elastic tension.”

93 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

Cellar Selection 

“This big, firm wine, produced by the team that makes Dow's and Graham's Port, is as impressive as always. With its tight plum skins and dense character, ripe jammy texture, and sweet fruit, it combines immediate charm with the potential for long-term aging.”

92 Pointz Wine Spectator

“Focused and refined, with chewy tannins and a fruity, citrusy aftertaste. Full, medium sweet, and racy. This is much better than what I tasted from barrel. From one of the most beautiful Port farms in the Douro Valley.”

90 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“The purple/black 2007 Quinta do Roriz Vintage Port displays a pleasing perfume of violets, incense, spice box, and assorted black fruits. On the palate it has excellent volume with plenty of round, layered, succulent fruit and an overall friendly personality. Impeccably balanced.” 

2003 Quinta de Roriz Vintage Port Reviews

97 Pointz Wine Spectator

“Aromas of licorice, blackberries, and flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with light sweetness and an incredible core of gorgeous raspberry fruit. Long finish.”  

95 Pointz Wine & Spirits

“The vineyard produced fruit with an explosive power in 2003, layers of black cherry, blueberry, blackberry, and esteva, all concentrated and fresh without a hint of super-ripeness. Pull back the purple velvet curtains of that youthful fruit and there's a substantial tannic structure, a gritty, complex bitter chocolate flavor that holds the fruit in play for over a minute after each sip. Thoroughly delicious, with a long life ahead.” 

2000 Quinta de Roriz Vintage Port Reviews

95 Pointz Wine Spectator

“This is really fantastic. Wonderful aromas of grapes, berries, and cherries. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with wonderfully refined tannins and a long, long finish. A gorgeous wine.”

92 Pointz Wine Enthusiast 

“This Quinta is owned by the van Zeller family. Its fruit is vinified and marketed by the Symington. It's a hugely ripe wine that also has a fine tannic, almost minerally character, which leaves a great structure. Expect this wine to age long and well.”
