Previously tried other vintages, ‘11 & ‘13, ok but not much better. Interesting blend of Cab, Merlot and Agiorgitiko (Greek grape). Vivid red with purple hues. Aged for 12 months in oak casks gives this wine aromas of blue/red fruits. The palate shows red/black fruit flavors with spice & oak. Rough tannins, out of balance with acidity, not a great offering. Just not a fan of wines from Greece. Tasting Sample.

A while ago I tried an ‘11 and notes or was one of the better wines from Greece that I have tried, not this one. Tasting Sample.
