Came across this in Greece and loved it. Found a few bottles to bring home. Hard to describe. Smells older, a little oaky, musty and maybe s little toast. Kind of like mature pinot. Good acid, tannic but not too much. Sour cherries, red fruits, but lovely warm feeling. Kind of starts like mature syrah, but more like grenache in the mouth.
