Jeunes Vignes de Xinomavro 2018

What a surprise. Red fruits (mostly raspberry on nose) with roses and leather. Medium with nice tannins and acidity. Drinks like a great Barolo but 1/5 the price. Had with Vicias Greek feast - pom lacquered lamb shoulder and cous cous. — 25 days ago

Aghechoros Xinomavro Merlot 2015

Vintage 2015 | what a difference a year makes! A year ago some sharp and disturbing edges, and now: lovely wine with nice expressions of spices and flint, great balance and looking forward to another glass. | Paired with a schnitzel and mixed vegetable stew from the oven. — 15 days ago

Naoussa Xinomavro 2017


Plenty or earthy spice, ink, sour cherry, dried herbs, dried blueberry, damp violets, wet peat and prune (though not in a dried out fruit kind of way). There a mineral component too, like cinders or coal but in a very pleasant way.
Palate has a lovely balance and refreshing acidity that keeps everything fresh, stewed but sleep black and blue berry fruits, touch of palms violet and that black and sour cherry and prune fruit coming on the finish.

Terra Petra Rapsani Xinomavro Blend 2017

The Greek wines were the best of the bunch!

The Rapsani had cigar box, burning wood, barnyard, cherries, and campfire. Lovely!

The last wine was a dessert wine that was brown in color and contained massive caramel. Very thick and sweet, but refined.
