Wine Advocate Review
Rated 93+
The 2019 Duas Quintas Reserva is a 70/20 blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, with Tinta da Barca for the rest, all aged for 18 months in 20% new French oak of various sizes. It comes in at a hefty 15.7% alcohol. A big Reserva, this has fine depth and concentration, big fruit flavors and pungent aromatics. There is a serious backbone too. It is, though, the highest I've seen in alcohol (although some might have more generic and less accurate label numbers rather than the actual analytical numbers I seek now). So far, this seems to handle its size and alcohol very well, even if it is a bit of an outlier (but not as much for the Reserva, as the regular in this report is for that lighter-styled brand). In fact, it seems rather delicious and still focused. It's tightly wound but not harsh. Right now, I have to lean up on this but not quite all the way. I'm sure some will find it sensational, but I would like to see some evidence it can hold its balance. The tannins are not hard, so you can try this now. It will still be better in a couple of years, if all goes well. Drink: 2023-2041.

Wine Tasting Notes
Ramos-Pinto Douro Duas Quintas Reserva Red is clean and bright dark red color with grenat reflections. Very lively and fresh, vinous and complex nose. The aromas of ripe fruit blend with fresher, mentholated aromas. Spicy aromas of cloves and black pepper are deeply revealed, all of this involved by a toasted wood very well integrated. Entry in the mouth with volume that lingers as we realize all the aromatic layers of this wine that range from ripe plums and blackberries to fresh from the bucho. Good structure with soft tannins and a freshness that lengthens the aftertaste.
