Quevedo Ruby Port 750mL

Taste of the Douro

This ruby port wine from Portugal’s trea­sured Douro Val­ley bursts with the aro­mas and tastes of red fruits and berries. Its fla­vor is so nuanced, it rates an 88 on Wine Spectator!

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

This red port from Queve¬≠do boasts the same ruby col¬≠or as its name¬≠sake. It is made from a mix of ports from dif¬≠fer¬≠ent har¬≠vests, bot¬≠tled young to pre¬≠serve its col¬≠oration and fresh¬≠ness as well as to pre¬≠vent oxi¬≠da¬≠tion. The fruiti¬≠ness of cher¬≠ry, rasp¬≠ber¬≠ry, and red¬≠cur¬≠rant with a hint of anise waft straight out of the bot¬≠tle on open¬≠ing, and the wine itself is dense and full-bod¬≠ied with clear tan¬≠nins. Its lin¬≠ger¬≠ing notes are of a deep¬≠er, dark¬≠er fruit vari¬≠ety: plum and black fruit jam.

PAIR­INGS

Best served slight¬≠ly chilled, ruby port pairs well with desserts and appe¬≠tiz¬≠ers both. For a light repast or the begin¬≠ning of a meal, a small glass goes well with stuffed olives and pick¬≠les. Whether you count cheese as a dessert or meal starter, the more mature, aged vari¬≠ants are best. This port goes from a dessert range of apple pies, cheese¬≠cakes, and flans to an array of choco¬≠late cakes, pud¬≠dings, and truf¬≠fles. We love it with every¬≠thing from the Michel Cluizel Choco¬≠lates ‚Äď Noir Col¬≠lec¬≠tion. How¬≠ev¬≠er, should you want to sip your port in the mid¬≠dle of a meal, it pairs well with a sim¬≠ple steak or stew, too!

FROMUNESCO-REC­OG­NIZED REGION

The Douro has been known for its des¬≠ig¬≠nat¬≠ed vine¬≠yards since the mid-1700s, mak¬≠ing it the old¬≠est demar¬≠cat¬≠ed wine region in the world. Grape har¬≠vest and wine¬≠mak¬≠ing in the val¬≠ley date back 2,000 years, giv¬≠ing the awe-inspir¬≠ing ter¬≠raced vine¬≠yards on either side of the Douro Riv¬≠er Val¬≠ley recog¬≠ni¬≠tion as a UNESCO World Her¬≠itage Site. Port wine from this val¬≠ley is con¬≠sid¬≠ered a cul¬≠tur¬≠al trea¬≠sure of Por¬≠tu¬≠gal, with affi¬≠ciona¬≠dos from around the world flock¬≠ing to see and par¬≠tic¬≠i¬≠pate in the har¬≠vest sea¬≠son every September.
