    September 20, 2020 - Great wine, classic Greek style. Reasonable overtones of leather, so better with food. Paired very well with lamb (surprise!).

    June 1, 2019 - Brick red, Nose of red cherries, strawberries, roses, iron, tar. Ripe fruit on the palate, med tannin, med acidity. Good persistence. Appreciated by a company of xino-neophytes who blindly took it for a decent Langhe Nebbiolo. For me another confirmation of the reds of this winemaker.

    November 26, 2018 - PNP. color light garnet. can't quite place the nose but blind would have guessed italian. swishing this shows terse acidity and tannin structure. sipping this transforms the structure though, and this is lithe with just enough fruit to keep the structure down. very nice wine.

    November 7, 2018 - Honestly not sure if I've had a more appealing red wine from Greece. This stuff is cool. Quirky and fun; torrefaction and fresh air whirl together playfully. Fruit flavors are in equal proportion to non-fruit flavors, which might make you think this could fade quickly, but I don't think so. There is probably not a ton of room for improvement, but it should remain delightful for many years. Ethereal and deep at once, with beautiful aromas of dried herbs, olives, roses, tobacco, chocolate... it has a delectable note reminiscent of the caramelized juice that oozes out of a roasted sweet potato. Fruit flavors are mainly of the dried variety, with just touches of fresh fruit and liqueur: tamarind, currants, cherry and tiny wild blueberries. Elegant and not even close to full-bodied, almost light but it has great impact. Lively through the finish, tannins are fine and satin textured, carrying lots of savory flavors. What will this become? It certainly improves with a few hours of air, opening up on the nose but remaining tight-knit on the palate.
