Kikones

Syrah 2016

Deep purple in color with a wide reddish/ purplish rim.

Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity. Dry and rich on the palate.

Showing black currants, black plums, ripen cherries, wood, spices, peppercorn, barnyard, vegetables, herbs, espresso and violets.

Short finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is my first Syrah from Greece. An interesting wine. Fruit forward with an old world feel. Definitely feels like a fruit forward Syrah.

This 6 year old is drinking very elegantly now, with nice complexity and balance. Spicy and engaging.

Peaking now and will continue to drink nicely in the next few years. I gave it 2 hours to open up.

Good by itself and better with food. Will pair nicely with lamb dishes.

100% Syrah grapes were hand harvested and aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. Unfined and unfiltered.

14% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$30.

Meth' Imon 7 Red Blend 2017

👁Purple colour

👃 a ripe and rich yet fresh nose of plums and blueberries, meat, chocolate and mint and mediterranean spice.

👄Velvety on the palate with intense vanilla flavours, supple and sappy tannins and fine concentration. Also some bitter chocolate and a soft touch of eucalyptus

🕰 perfect drinking now but for sure it will survive another 10 years.

Domaine Nerantzi

Serres Assyrtiko 2021

What a value! While it’s not like the most profound Santorini assyrtikos, it’s reasonably close and way better than the mediocre Santorini versions. — 20 days ago

Markogianni Winery

Vorias & Helios Roditis 2020

Definitely not white wine. Savory and structured Roditis with skin contact. Bergamot, quince, dried orange peel, tomato vine, cashews, hazelnuts, tannin. Organic. Dare I say this is a “classic” orange wine? Pair this with spanakopita when you’re feeling funky. — 10 hours ago

Winery Stilianou

Great Mother Mandilari

This was a delicious summer red served just a few degrees above cellar temperature. And it’s a very bright red thanks to only one day of maceration on the skins. Yet it still had some tannins and nice depths of aromas and flavors. — 8 days ago
