Fruit forward. Dominant cherry aroma with light cinnamon and other baking spices. Same flavours on the palate. Medium-light body. Soft, medium finish of red fruit. Not tannic at all, yet balanced.

Colin McKone rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

Medium Ruby in colour with aromas of plum, cooked red fruit, liquorice, smoke and alcohol. Cooked peppery red fruit flavours. It is medium bodied with biting acidity and tannins. Will pair well with strong and hard cheeses.
rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Translucent ruby red with aromas of dark berries, white pepper, smoke, and a touch of licorice allsorts candy. On the palate, the berry flavours are out done by young tannins and acidly. Stewed smoky fruit and licorice flavours remain on the palate in a rather long finish. Another very dry Greek wine, this would pair well with a well seasoned, roasted chicken.
David Skinner rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby and purple rim. Stewed plum and licorice aromas. Firm tannins and solid acidity with black fruit flavours slightly overshadowed by cocoa and barrel influences. Smoky notes dominate the medium-long finish

Drink this with smoked eggplant and couscous.
Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Translucent medium ruby in colour. Stewed red and black fruit notes, with underlying cedar tones. Fresh acidity lifts the fruit nicely on the palate. The tannins are moderately firm and slightly grippy. Mocha and cedar notes dominate the finish, with warming alcohol lingering.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
