Gift from Ramos Pinto

Post by jdaw1 » 13:01 Wed 24 Dec 2014

Ramos Pinto have very kindly sent me four bottles. By email they said it was for me to decide whether they are gifts to the team or to me.

• Ramos Pinto vintage 2000;
• Reserva Duas Quintas 2012;
• Ramos Pinto 20Y tawny;
• Ramos Pinto 30Y tawny.

The first two definitely belong at a team event of some description. If the two tawnies also belong, I will of course save bring them to that event. But if we have few events at which they would be a natural fit, instead they could be very fine for home consumption. And I quite fancy having, this evening, RP20Y, RP30Y and S20Y side-by-side. Does anybody strongly object?

I assume these are the new bottles - RP20 and RP30? I am very interested to hear your impressions, as I just tasted these for the first time on the Port Harvest Tour this year.

Have a wonderful evening!
