Duas Quintas Reserva is now established as one of the benchmark wines in the Douro. This dark-colored effort has ripe, concentrated dark berry and herb flavors and a fine sense of tannic structure from wood aging. There's a strong sense of minerality as well, giving this richness and aging potential.
