Two reds from Portugal


Tons de Duorum Red 2014, Douro, Portugal (£8.90 Tanners)
Young, juicy style, fleshy berry to the fore, notes of liquorice, vanilla and herby in the background. Should appeal to Argie Malbec fans. B+

Ramos Reserva 2014, VR Alentejano, Portugal (£6.99 Majestic)
A plusher, plummier wine than the above, still spicy, but warmer and more mellow – if the Tons is the rib-eye wine, this is for the boeuf bourguignon. B(+)
