Good! Another mystery case hit. Light and very earthy pleasant Bordeaux blend. — 4 months ago
Vintage 2015 / Wednesday Meatballsday (4) / why does someone call his wine ‘No one’ ? It is asking for troubles... you might presume. It has to do with Odyssey, when he was trapped by the Cyclops Polyphemus in his cave, he offered the most precious wine and the Cyclops asked for its name. Kanenas means No one. Enfin... good story, but how does it taste? The colour is half transparant, a ruby rim. It seems a very easy wine, comforting, quaffable, hap sap. But drinking with care one discovers a very nice nose, smell of raspberries, quite frivolous. Hints of spices. Made from local grape Mavroudi and Syrah. Paired very well with meatballs, broccoli and baked potatoes. Greece is really interesting. — 2 years ago

Pleasantly surprised. Wasn’t sure what to expect as this came in the mystery case but drank like a balanced earthy Pinot. Would try this again depending on price. — 5 months ago
Lighter for a Merlot, a bit more like a Pinot Noir on the palate, but very good. — 3 years ago
Very flavorful. The beginning explodes with ripe yellow fruits, not sweet, but not quite completely dry, with lingering floral notes and some savory and lightly mineral flavors on the finish. Great chilling wine with an amazing nose as well. — 9 months ago
Holy smokes! Really need to get myself a bottle. B&S summed up the wine perfectly:
This is near immaculate. Match a consistently revered wine with a once-in-a-lifetime vintage and what you get is a rare and illusive gem.
Perfectly warm days and cool, steady nights allowed for ideal growing conditions in Clonakilla’s famed vineyards. With the ability to pick fruit at their own leisure, Tim Kirk and his team gained full fruit ripeness, balanced phenolic complexity and even increased the whole bunches to 30% for each ferment. The sensorial odyssey begins with perfumed florals and aromas of spice, charcuterie and wild herbs; before bright red and blue berries emerge on the palate. There’s a line of savoury richness which seamlessly interplays with the wine’s elegant tannin structure, however, what truly marks the experience is the complexity that each mouthful delivers. An immediate classic. — 4 years ago
