Wine Advocate Review
The 2013 Duas Quintas Reserva is a blend of 66% Touriga Nacional, 21% Touriga Franca and 13%Tinta Barca, fermented in large vats and aged for 16 months in a mixture of new, second and third use barrels. Not showing quite the density of some, it still has gorgeous structure and beautiful fruit. It is a very nice effort in a difficult vintage, but it is showing very little now except its power. Lots of aeration allowed, this might be a bit more interesting, but all you can do with this just now is cellar it. At the moment, it doesn't quite have the concentration of some of the stars here, but they didn't seem quite as concentrated when young, either. Drink: 2018 - 2035.
The Duas Quintas Reserva is bright, gleaming, and has intense color with shades of red. There is a complex nose in which subtle hints of orange blossom and spices give way to aromas of red fruits like strawberries, plums and cherries. It hits the palate with volume and develops a good tannic structure, which indicates the wine's ageability. The wine a good balance and a long finish.
