    Garnet. Chocolate cherry on the nose. Beautifully balanced w/ the softest tannins. Very nice finish. Dick thought it had a sharp/pepper nose w/ fruit, full bodied w/ a long finish.He rated it 95. Pat thought it was earthy.Mine and the group's WOTN by a mile.

    Portugal, Douro

    (1/12/2010)

    Garnet. Slightly flawed w/ a bot of barnyard on the nose but it mostly blew off and I got creamy raspberry on the nose. Tannins slighlty greater than acidity. Litlle bitter on the finish. Dick thought it had a sharp peppery nose and a harsh finish.

  • 2005 Prats and Symington Douro Chryseia 93 Points

    Portugal, Douro

    (1/12/2010)

    Garnet. Creamy raspberry w/ some violet on the nose. MJId to full bodied. Tannins greater than acidity. Drying finish but will, no doubt, be better in a year or two. Dick really like this and rated it 95. The group's 2nd favorite but by just a smidge over the '05 PS.

    Deep ruby. Raspberry. Welterweight. Balanced. Not as comples as the big brother '05 but good. Nice finish. Just edged out being the 2nd favorite of the night by its big brother.

Closing

Once again pretty much spliting hairs as to quality of the wines.I was quite astonished at how soft all the tannins in the wines were...making for great sipping just on their own.
