Review: 2014 Quinta de Roriz Post Scriptum Douro DOC

Prats + Symington’s Post Scriptum, produced at its Quinta de Roriz winery, is this year a blend of three classic Portuguese grapes — 64% Touriga Nacional, 28% Touriga Franca, and 8% Tinta Roriz. I was not enchanted with the 2011 release (a different blend), but the 2014 vintage is quite a bit of fun. Lively with fruit-forward raspberry but tempered with licorice, tobacco, and some leathery notes, the wine is nicely balanced with some supple tannins and a lick of vanilla on the back end.
