The The 2008 Kir Yianni Ramnista Xinomavro is a light bodied, integrated wine, with nice aromas of red currant, cherry, pine and liquorice. The tannins are refined to tannic (really needs to be decanted for 1 hour) and the silky finish is of medium length. Drink now or cellar for 5+ years. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts - a recommended buy for lovers of light bodied wines. Tasted Feb/12.

Tasted at Guild Greek Wine event
Xinomavro is pronounced “see-NO-ma-vro.” Depending on which critic you read, Xinomavro (which means “black acid” in Greek) is likened to Piedmont’s Nebbiolo or Burgundy’s Pinot Noir, and in our opinion is somewhere between the two. This example seems to support the notion as it carries elements of both while still being very much its own wine. Deep ruby colour with aromas of cherry, blackberry, vanilla, earth and spice dominating. Dry and flavourful with good layers of acid and chewy tannins suggesting good ageing potential (4-6 years).
