Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Tasting Notes: The Ramos-Pinto Superior Tawny is a deep brick-red color gained from its extended sojourn in oak. Intense fruit aromas greet the nose, with full secondary aromas evident. The first impression is light and hot, evolving into a rich smoothness gained from wood aging. Ready to drink upon release, this is a well-matured port, fruity, with a fine flavored, dry finish.

Serving Suggestions: A light, open wine, the Ramos-Pinto Tawny should be drunk cool in warm weather, at room temperature in cooler climates (generally between 16-20° C; 60-68° F). Wonderful as an apéritif or with a not too sweet dessert or cheese plate. Exquisite with melons or Roquefort cheese.

this wine seems harsh and too sharp for my tastes. I do not like its taste at all.
