The purple / black 2007 Quinta do Roriz Vintage Port gives a pleasant smell of violets, incense, spices, and various black fruits. On the palate, it has excellent volume with plenty of round, layered, juicy fruit and an overall friendly personality. Impeccably balanced, this port will evolve over 6-8 years and is drinkable into 2027. It offers a solid value.
Storage: Bottles should lie horizontally, in a cool dark place. Matures slowly, develops and refines in the bottle for decades.
Serve: Decant and serve between 16 and 18ºC, in a suitable glass. Walnuts are an excellent complement to Vintage Port, as are various cheeses such as Stilton and Dorset Blue Vinny. So are dried fruits such as apricots or figs. Or just enjoy the unadulterated taste in a good glass with good company.
