Prats & Symington LDA 2000 Chryseia Red (Douro)

A joint venture between the Symington family and Bruno Prats, formerly of Château Cos d'Estournel in Bordeaux, has produced Chryseia. The name is Greek for “gold,” a play on the River Douro's name (which means “gold” in Portuguese). It is a fully extracted wine, with purple colors and rich tannins, but it is also finely balanced and very elegant. Still young, with a dry finish, it should develop in a classic Bordeaux way over the next 5–10 years. —R.V. Roger Voss
