External Reviews for Duas Quintas Reserva
Essence of blackberry, black cherry and cassis define this deep-flavored red. This has a Portlike aroma and loads of smoke and spice notes, which fold into the rich, intense finish. Drink now through 2008. 400 cases imported. -KM Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Douro in Portugal. 2000 Ramos-Pinto Douro Duas Quintas Reserva 750ml
Wine & Spirits ReviewFrom Ramos Pinto's two Douro Superior vineyards, one high altitude providing the freshness to the wine, one along the banks of the Coa giving the arid Douro florals that make this wine compelling. There's a wild tone to the succulent raspberry fruit, a scent of violets and schist. The flavors continue to extend with air, lasting with a comfortable balance and elegant feel. This should be reaching its best around ten years from the vintage, and its freshness should carry it for years after that.Wine Spectator ReviewRated 93Intense and alluring, with smoky aromas and loads of rich and ripe flavors of dark plum, black current and dark cherry. This is a full-throttle red that is muscular but balanced. Finished with silky tannins and delicious notes of cream and spice. Drink now through 2008.
