João Portugal Ramos erhält 91 Punkte für den ›Marquês de Borba Reserva Tinto 1999‹

Robert Parker vom renommierten Weinmagazin »The Wine Advocate« bewertet in seiner Ausgabe 130/2000 den ›Marquês de Borba Reserva Tinto 1999‹ von João Portugal Ramos aus dem D.O.C. Alentejo mit 91/100 Punkten (= herausragend). Über die Cuvée aus Alicante Bouschet, Cabernet Sauvignon, Castelão Francês und Trincadeira Preta schreibt der Redakteur unter anderem im Original:

„The impressive and opulent 1999 Marques de Borba Tinto Reserva exhibits sweet fruit as well as a fat, thick, juicy mid-palate, great concentration, and integration of tannin and wood. This outstanding effort is full-bodied and rich, with copious aromas of cassis fruit, blackberries, truffles, minerals and smoke. Impressiveley-endowed, with sweet tannin, low acidity, and a multi-layered texture, it should drink well during its first 15 years of life.
