    April 29, 2021 - My first retsina. No real taste to it except the subtle pine taste. Fail.

    August 12, 2020 - Bright pale straw. Nose is kinda shy, but then asserts with a bit of Viognier-like “stank” over yellow, non-tropical fruit. Palate is medium light with an earthy, lemony core and a dirty, woodsy finish. That plus the medium acidity makes for a wine that definitely calls out for complex food flavors. My dolmades seemed made for this. Not as frightening as I’d been led to believe, but this was called a “modern interpretation” of Retsina in the notes so there’s that. A wine to accompany those wildly complex Greek and Mediterranean flavors. Olives, grape leaves, tzatziki, dates, feta, and the like — taken together — will find a simpatico companion here. Pair with old Greek men. Drink now.

    March 22, 2020 - I wasn’t sure what to expect in a retsina but know I know. Very unique with the Aleppo pine tree sap added. This wine isn’t for me. However it was better on its own than paired with food.

    April 21, 2019 - What FIFISODA said. Tastes like dirt. Last place of four retsinas.
