Karnari Kotsifali 2017

Kotsifali grape grown in the Kamari region of western Crete in Greece, is made in the Marouvas style for a “more gentle” wine. Made by a female winemaker. No idea what Kapnapi is but try their website at lyrakis.com On initial pour, light to moderate pigment extraction, red plum in color, very good clarity. Aromas of unripe cherries and wood with a hint of butter/butyric. Soft mouthfeel, lightly flavored but a tad viscous. 14.9% alc/vol but not hot. Light mint and herbal notes in aftertaste. Quite different a wine, tasty but I’m not sure what I should be looking for in this variety. Good craft here, keep fighting the good fight against the patriarchy! Paired well with green chicken enchiladas as the snow was coming down outside. 24 hours later, light chewy tannins emerge, along with grape fruit, soft acid, and just a bit of aldehydic-sherry character. Fun wine, savory, not fruit forward. I’d decant it though. Would like to revisit this one. — a year ago
