Dafnios Crete Vidiano 2016

Pale straw color. Lemon, pineapple, green grape skin, and touch of tannin? Really nice. My first wine from Crete. I like it. Real big QPR. — 17 days ago

Dafnios Vidiano 2017

Quite pleasant and balanced. No particular character but very complementary to a fish dinner. Crisp, acidic finish. Clean mineral close. — a month ago

Paleokerisio Traditional Semi-sparkling Ioannina Orange 2016

Orange peel, herbs, even some pine - crazily #glouglou just needs right pairing - Cheese would work or I did roasted tomatoes on toast as an app. — 11 days ago

Domaine Economou

Sitia V.P.Q.R.D. Red Blend 2004

Lots of leather and stewed fruits flavors, but overall a little flabby and without much persistence. This wine was highly recommended but a few insiders told me 2004 paled in comparison to 2006 and 1999. — a month ago

Aplá Dry Rosé Blend 2017

Gorgeous color here. Xino/Cab Rose? Yes please. Nose has some wonderful funk, an orange marmalade thing. Prickly palette with minerality. Buy some! Thanks for the recommendation Ann @hitime !! — 4 days ago

What a backdrop.


Angels' Treasure

Okay, this is the most most profound incarnation of Greece’s signature liquor that I’ve ever had. The Metaxa Angel’s Treasure is a 50-year-aged version of their premier distillate, and it is awesome. A hypothetical hybrid between an aged congnac and a brilliant aged single malt, this is a brilliant expression of this drink (and siginificantly better than the riserva, which I used to think was the top of the heap). Absolutely awesome. — 16 days ago

Domaine Economou

Oikonomoy Crete Assyrtiko 2013

Deep oxidation qualities, with almonds, pears, and a certain nuttiness. Highly recommended for a different side of Crete. — a month ago
