Portuguese wine is the result of traditions introduced to the region by ancient civilizations, such as the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, and mostly the Romans. Portugal produces a wide variety of different wines with distinctive personality because they have a large array of native varietals.

Produced as part of a joint venture between the Prats family of Bordeaux and the Symington family of the Douro, this wine shows great attention to tannins and structure while allowing the black fruits to shine. It is a stylish wine, powerful while wearing that power lightly. Drink this wine, from a very good year, from 2022. CELLAR SELECTION"
WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "The 2015 Chryseia is a 65/35 blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca aged for 15 months in mostly (80%) new French oak. It comes in at 14.2% alcohol. When last seen, this was not long in bottle, so let's check in. What does this add to the Post Scriptum? Concentration, expressive fruit and structure. The tannins are very ripe, but the concentration of fruit here makes this impressive. It tastes great and the finish is long. Then, it adds refinement, mid-palate finesse and an elegant, fresh feel. This is surprisingly approachable right now, but I anticipate that it will age well for another decade—or two."
