2018 vintage. Roasted red plum, cranberry, stewed cherries, graphite, leather, muted spice, dried herb. Good structure. Less Nebbiolo-like than other examples of the grape, incorporating a little more ripeness and baked quality to the fruit.

Xinomavro is pretty much an instant buy for me when I see it on the menu. It’s light and balanced and pairs well with pretty much anything.

X is for Xinomavro. Intense fruit-forward aromas of plums and red cherry, with underlying herbal notes of anise. Light body, bright acidity and drying tannins, but they aren't as intense as I expected with all of the comparisons to Nebbiolo. The red cherry comes through in the tart acid, with some herbal and tobacco notes. #atoz2021

Unfamiliar grape from uncommon place. Best described (by me) as remixed Nebbiolo with twist of cherry mint. Powerful and lucid at once, high alcohol, big boy tannin. Light and the color of ruby cherry juice with notes of pine and foresty cherry lozenge.
