CHRYSEIA 11 POST SCRIPTUM
CHRYSEIA 2011 POST SCRIPTUM

WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "The 2011 Post Scriptum de Chryseia, the second wine here, is a blend of 56% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca, and 7% Read More...
each of Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz, all aged for 13 months in French oak. This is a beautifully constructed Post Scriptum, elegant and graceful, yet focused, precise and flavorful. It is designed to have all of its parts in place, not to make you go “wow.” Aromatic and laced with floral nuances, it has a sappy taste in its youth, with some tannin pop and astringency on the finish that will integrate in time. This should develop well and drink decently early on, but give it a year or two in the cellar to settle down for best results. Bargain hunters will find that Post Scriptum is a particularly good value this year. On Day 1, there wasn’t much to choose from between this and big brother Chryseia, although they separated more significantly on Day 2. If you can’t spring for the pricier big brother, dive in right here. Drink 2014-2022. "

Not sure what these grapes will taste like? Well, it noses like a Malbec with rich spice, graphite, pencil shavings and gobs of dark fruit, plums and a touch of strawberry tea. Read More...
The palate is a nice mix between the fruit and spice of a Rhône with the body and structure of a decent-sized Cab. Bright mixed red fruits, chewy spice, black pepper, earth and plum finish with a brace of very good acidity. Barbecued meats, fatty cheeses, maybe a grand aïoli fête-- pair with richness and be rewarded!

the rest American). The used barriques were previously new on the 2010 Reserva Old Vines. About the only bad thing you can say about this is that it is too marked by oak in its youth, but that is always true when it is young. That will become much better in time. Some cellaring will provide additional complexity as well, but it is otherwise quite approachable now even if not showing us all that it has to give. For my money, this is easily on the short list as a contender for “Best Reserva Old Vines” ever, because of its combination of concentration, lift, structure and superb balance. This is not the wine in the lineup that will always make you go “wow.” There is not a hint of bombast. However, it does everything beautifully, and balance is its hallmark. Even as it tightens with air, it proves how harmonious it is, showing off its finesse, crispness and focus. The fruit always seems fresh and lively here, never ponderous. The next day it hardly seemed changed. This should age pretty nicely. If all that is not enough, it is pretty tasty, too, a wine that will be hard to dislike on all fronts. Considering the price point, this is a “can’t miss” buy. There were 93,000 bottles produced. Drink now-2026."

Situated on the right bank of the Douro River, between the towns of Régua and Pinhão, Quinta do Crasto has a privileged location in the Demarcated Region of the Douro. Quinta do Crasto has belonged to the family of Leonor and Jorge Roquette for over a century. Their passion for wine making has contributed to Quinta de Crasto´s growing national and international reputation. As the name suggests, this wine is made from old vines with an average age of 70 years, including as many as 30 different grape varieties.

The Douro Valley 2011 vintage is being heralded as the greatest of the last 100 year or more. “I believe it impossible to think of any other wine region anywhere in the world that has produced better wine in this year,” said British wine critic Jancis Robinson.

notes of tarragon. Presents focused minerality midpalate, offering a long, vibrant finish of dried wild herb and slate. Best from 2015 through 2022. 500 cases imported.”

2011 Quinta Do Vallado Reserva received 96 points from Wine Spectator it is "Highly Recommended." This wine is a field blend comprised of more than 20 varietals from 90 year-old Estate vineyards, where as most wineries have switched to mechanical treaders fashioned after the human foot Quinta Do Vallado crushes by feet in large stone troughs known in Spain and Portugal as lagares. The winemaker describes this blend as very dark red, with crimson highlights with balsamic oak aromas, as well as fig and black plum and hints of tobacco. The palate shows great structure and balance. Mineral notes mix with the aforementioned fruit, leading to an expressive and complex finish.

“I believe it impossible to think of any other wine region anywhere in the world that has produced better wine in this year,” said British wine critic Jancis Robinson in relation to the Douro Valley 2011 vintage which is being heralded as the greatest vintage of the last 100 years or more. The Duoro Valley experienced perfect conditions for the 2011 vintage: cool spring, hot summer and just enough rain before the grapes were harvested; so as to plump them up and prevent the overripe dried raisin-y character that is so indicative of hotter years to come through.
