Professional Wine Reviews for Quinta Da Romaneira Reserva Red 2013

Rated 92 by Wine Spectator
This brooding red sports plenty of muscle, with concentrated spiced plum, blackberry torte and licorice flavors. Details of dark chocolate, herb and smoke impart depth through the structured finish. Drink now through 2025. 750 cases made.
Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
The 2013 Tinto Reserva is a blend of Touriga Nacional (35%) and Touriga Franca (65%), aged for 14 months in a 75/25 mixture of used and new French oak. It comes in at 13% alcohol. This is where Romaneira steps up and adds more concentration, a feeling of fullness in the mouth and a tighter, more gripping finish. While not exactly abandoning the winery's basic, subtle style—the wine is approachable, shows refinement and finesse—this understated red sneaks up on you, the fruit lingering beautifully and becoming more interesting as it airs out. While the fruit becomes juicier and tastier the longer this is open, it is always dry and serious. All the while, it's a perfect food wine, simply lovely. There is not a hair out of place here. Nothing will make you go "wow," but this bottle will drain quickly at the table. No information was provided on availability.

Winery Quinta Da Romaneira

Region: Douro

From their beautifully rich Bordeaux style wines, to their famous fortified wines, the wineries of Douro in Portugal have long been recognized as being amongst the finest of the Old World. For over two thousand years, Douro has been an important center of fine wine production, and it isn't difficult to see why the earliest attempts at viticulture led to an ever expanding wine industry in the region. The beautiful Douro river provides the vineyards with all the moisture and nutrients they need in order to grow fruit of real character and flavor, and the long, baking hot summers help ripen the grapes and intensify their juices. Today, Douro wines are popular all over the world, and wineries are producing more bottles than ever before to keep up with demand. Although the region is still most famous for the fortified wines of Porto, the still wines have centuries of tradition, and a whole set of distinctive flavors and characteristics that simply cannot be ignored.

Country: Portugal

One of the oldest regions of Portugal for wine production and vine cultivation is the Bairrada, the lush and clay-rich region responsible for an impressive range of red, white and rosé wines of exceptional quality. As with much of the country, this region benefits from long, hot summers, allowing the grapes to ripen to full maturity and thus carry a wide range of flavors and aromas. However, each region of Portugal produces wines which reach a high level of quality, from the more urbanized regions around Lisbon and Porto, where the famous fortified and Colares wines originate, to the island of Madeira and the Dao river valley, which each have their own distinctive wine cultures. The several thousand years of viticultural history in Portugal has allowed Portuguese wineries to master their own traditional techniques, which are still employed to this day across the country, yielding excellent results for the world to enjoy.
