“From a partnership between João Portugal Ramos and José Maria Soares Franco, this is a bright and powerful Douro red that glistens with freshness. The tannins are firm and stony, buoying the fruit in scents of red plum and pomegranate. As one taster noted, ‘It would be easy to drink a bottle.’”(BEST BUY)

"The 2014 Tinto is a roughly equal blend of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional, with 20% Tinta Roriz, aged for 12 months in French oak (30% new). It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. There is not a lot of concentration here, but the fresh and flavorful fruit, together with caressing texture, makes this very attractive and tasty."
“The 2014 Tons red is the winery's entry-level red, a blend of 50% Touriga Franca, 30% Touriga Nacional and 20% Tinta Roriz, aged in used French oak for six months. For the entry-level in this generally poor vintage, this is pretty well done. It has some structure and a bright feel, leaving you with a juicy finish. It doesn't have a lot of depth and the fruit is not intensely flavorful, but at this bargain level, this is nicely done.”
“This second wine from Duorum brings out ripe fruits, firm still young tannins and some concentrated acidity. It has touches of minerality along with bright red fruits and bold streaks of acidity. The wine is young although it is ready to drink now.” - Best Buy
“The 2014 Branco is a blend of roughly equal parts of Viosinho, Rabigato, Verdelho, Arinto and Códega do Larinho. Approximately 30% of the blend was fermented and aged for six months in used French oak. This graceful Branco is lovely. Fresh, clean and elegant, it is nonetheless persistent. There are some herbaceous nuances on the finish, but mild ones. It handles the oak beautifully to the point where it has little impact on flavor. Overall, it's a nice success for the level. This is set to be released in the USA by the end of the year; all I can say is, the sooner the better. It should be a great warm weather wine.”
