Quinta de Saes Dao Reserva Estagio Prolongado 2013
“the first obligation of a wine is to be red…”, Harry Waugh. What more needs saying; here is where wine lovers demand and find complexity beyond the measure of any other wines. The wide variety of grapes being made into red wine permutated by country, terrior, vintage and wine maker yield a cornucopia of possibilities to suit nearly every taste or deviation thereof. The differences and similarities often elicit thoughtful contemplation as well as geeky lugubriosity. The generic "red wine" is meant to please, to drink casually and companionably; always my fallback.
