Review: 2018 Quinta de Roriz Post Scriptum Douro DOC
We’ve checked out Prats + Symington’s Post Scriptum on several occasions; as a refresher, this ever-changing red blend is a dry table wine made from the same grapes and hailing from the same region as Port. For 2018, the grape makeup is 58% Touriga Nacional, 39% Touriga Franca, and 3% Tinta Roriz.
The 2018 Post Scriptum remains a fairly walled-off experience, a bit gamy and tough at first, with brambly notes of licorice and lots of tannin — the classic flavors that this wine always tends to exude. Lightly beefy as it develops on the palate, the wine remains fairly closed-off and surprisingly woody as it winds its way toward a drying — yet curiously approachable — finish.
