2015 Ramos Pinto


Duas Quintas Portugal

$15.99

 

 The 2015 Duas Quintas is a blend of 39% Touriga Nacional and 34% Touriga Franca, with the rest a field blend of miscellaneous others typical of the region, like Tinta Roriz and Tinta Amarela. About half the juice was aged in wood (20% in well-used French barriques, 30% in tonels) for 13 months. It comes in at 14% alcohol. This is a wonderful and classic regular 2015 tinto. As the pattern goes, this level generally has only modest concentration compared to the Reserva or years like 2011, but it has a wonderfully fresh feel that lifts intensely flavorful fruit. So, too, here—and in a year like this, you can double down on the freshness and flavor. Delicious and fruit forward yet beautifully supported by its acidity, this is a wine that is pretty hard to resist just now. It may not have grandeur, but it is worth leaning up on in its exuberant youth. It's not just a fruit bomb, by the way. It also has the structure to age a bit. They traditionally do. In this year, though, the gorgeous fruit and fresh feel may make you dive in pretty fast. This is a super bargain in a lighter-styled, fresh red, what I call a "summer red" these days. Don't drink it too warm. Wine Advocate 90



This fresh, full-bodied red shows focus, with firm, integrated tannins guiding the plum, wild raspberry and sandalwood flavors underscored by graphite, pepper and spice accents. Aromas of tea and underbrush add detail to the long finish. Drink now through 2023. 2,500 cases imported.–GS Wine Spectator 90
