About the Wine

DUORUM Wines started in January 2007 as an expression of wishes of João Portugal Ramos and José Maria Soares Franco wishes to join their activities as professional winemakers in one wine production project from Douro region, with unique characteristics and an international dimension. The Duo are both leading winemakers in Duoro and Alentejo.

A blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, and Tinta Roriz, this wine comes from two different parcels of land in two different Douro sub-regions at two different altitudes. The grapes are carefully selected and fermented in stainless steel tanks before aging in oak barrels for approximately twelve months.

Tasting Notes: 

A richly aromatic wine of black cherries, tar, mocha, and a hint of violets. On the palate, this wine's rich texture is balanced perfectly against a zesty acidity, and rounded out by well-integrated, fine-grained tannins. This wine begs for another sip as its mellifluous flavors develop well into the finish.

Reviews

#84 in Wine Spectator Top 100 list of 2015

This has a delicate core of violet, plum and red berry flavors that are broad yet well-defined. Medium-grained tannins gain power midpalate, with mineral and shiso leaf notes on the taut finish. Drink now through 2020. 600 cases imported. ~91WS
