TN: Post Scriptum de Chryseia 2004, Douro, $23

Continuing on my Portugal kick, this red table wine from the Douro
is a collaboration between the Symington Port family and Bordeaux legend
Bruno Prats. Thus the name, P and S, with the post scriptum as a second
wine to their ultra premium wine called Chryseia. Using traditional
Port varietals and new French barrels, the P.S. offers creamy aromas of
vanillin and cherry, which open up with about a half-hour’s worth of air
to reveal some leathery characteristics and a long finish. While meant
to be an early drinker compared to Chryseia, I think this won’t really
reach its peak for another year or two. But don’t be scared in the
meantime – just decant it for an hour before drinking. Imported by Premium Port Brands, San Francisco. www.premiumport.com .
