Winemaker's Notes

Number 76 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

Quinta de Roriz Reserva is made with a blend of native Douro grape varieties including Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz, which acquired its name from the estate when it was first brought to the Quinta in the 19th century. (Tinta Roriz originated in Spain, where it is known as "Tempranillo".)

This dry red table wine is tasting particularly well right now after a few years of bottle age. It features ripe, dark fruit flavors with sweet, spicy notes that are balanced by earthy notes and exotic flavors typical of the Douro.

Douro reds pair particularly well with game meats, stews and full-flavored cheeses. Decanting is suggested for enhanced aromatics.

Purchase price: $15.99. At $15.99 this is a bargain. A bit of a fruity but bold body with smooth tannin structure. Let me just say this went very well with my filet. Even at the regular 31.99 price I would easily buy again.

Delicious medium body . Blackberry, red plum with a hint of chocolate and smoke. Very lovely aromas and flavors. Long lasting finish with a lingering note of metal , oak and tobacco. Very focused wine.

Learn About Quinta de Roriz Map ItMap It

Quinta de Roriz is one of the oldest and finest estates in the Douro and has been owned by the van Zeller family since 1815. Historical records show that Roriz was the very first Quinta Port to be exported and the first Quinta to establish an international reputation for the quality of its wines. During much of the 19th Century, Roriz was considered one of the greatest of Vintage Ports, and it is intended to re-establish this standing in the 21st Century.
