Chryseia Douro 2012
Wine EnthusiastThis marks the 17th vintage of this wine, a joint venture between the Douro-based Symington family and Bordeaux consultant Bruno Prats. Based entirely on fruit from Quintas de Roriz and Perdiz, this smooth, structured wine has many of the characteristics of Bordeaux with its new wood and elegant texture. Acidity, black fruits and tannins are developing well.
Wine SpectatorPure and fresh-tasting, with good cut to the dark plum, blackberry pie and hot stone flavors, full of mincemeat and mineral notes. The luscious finish oozes chocolate mousse and raspberry ganache accents. Drink now through 2022. 2,470 cases made.
