Now well-established as a Douro classic this latest vintage of Chryseia shows the same concentration and dense tannins while bringing an extra element of elegance and balance. This gives the wine obvious aging potential over at least 6-7 years. R.V.

The 2008 "CHRYSEIA" is sourced from various vineyards owned by the Symingtons including Perdiz Vila Velha Vesuvio and Bomfim. It is a 50/50 blend of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional this year aged for 12 months in French oak. Showing a touch of rhubarb and a harmonious demeanor it is fragrant and supple appealingly graceful yet with a backbone underlying its fruit and giving it some support. It is in short an exceptionally attractive Chryseia that grew on me as time went on sunny fleshy and flavorful showing finesse with the intensity of flavor. This will require a little patience in the cellar for best results however ready it seems today. Frugal winos may be find a nice alternative with the '08 Post-Scriptum reviewed this issue. There were 33945 bottles produced. Drink 2012-2024.-Mark Squires

Suave and powerful with dark cherry violet plum and mocha flavors that feature touches of smoke. Black fig and olive notes join in on the finish along with plenty of dark chocolate. Drink now through 2020. -KM
