Natalie's Score: 89/100

Old leather and violets: this wine surprised me, especially for the price. This is all earth and spice with supporting fruit but the fruit is secondary. It tastes very mature in the best sense. Can’t beat this price.

This somewhat atypical bottling is oak softened, and the texture is quite velvety. Despite all the back and forth one sees on this wine’s oak treatment, it is hardly a parody of Xinomavro. This has excellent structure, intense and tannin on the finish and good acidity. The longer it aired out, the more interesting it became … That is a function, to some extent, of it being a year young, but this has some extra power. I found myself appreciating it more for its potential than its current attractiveness, but this has some upside. Drink 2011-2020. Score: 89 Source: Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast
