There’s plenty of zest to this juicy red, filled with brambly flavors. Boysenberry and cherry notes dominate, showing some creamy details. The crisp finish lingers with truffle accents. Drink now through 2017. 2,700 cases imported.-KM

The 2012 Duas Quintas regular Tinto was seen several months back in a less formal setting, but it is worth a new look, as it is officially in the USA now. It shows extremely well. It is principally 45% Touriga Nacional and 35% Touriga Franca, with 5% each or less of a variety of other grapes, including Tinta Roriz, Tinta da Barca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Amarela, Sousao and Tinto Cao. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Approximately 50% was aged in stainless steel tanks, 30% in large oak vats (tonels) and 20% in French oak barrels (all from 3 to 5 years old), all for 14 months. This is often an extremely appealing basic Tinto, and so, too, this year. Its claim to fame will be its fresh fruit, marvelously tasty, exuberant and vibrant in its youth. It has enough structure and definition to make it seem like real wine. Yes, as it airs out (and no doubt as it will age), it also shows its flaw, if you want to call it that, for a wine in this price range: there is not a lot of mid-palate concentration. That said, it does have nice structure and balance. At this price level, this will fill most desires for a nice house wine. Its charm and elegance should make it very appealing. It can also be chilled down a bit and be a perfect summer wine. It should be a crowd pleaser in the short to mid-term. For the moment, I am going to continue to lean up on this. That may not always be the case, but it is simply hard to resist.
