Almost fully brown color but tastes pretty fresh. Great acid and minerals with dried black fruit.

Awesome bottle. Prunes and violets meets oregano and a rocky minerality, bright acid and high tannin. Lovely and surprising.

A lot like memories of Crete - forward lushness with a distinctly refined classical restraint and purity. Hillside scrubby herbs, olive skin tannin and flesh. Beautiful fruit and slightly charred edge.

Fascinating juice. Would have fooled me for aged nebbiolo.

I feel like I'm drinking a Barolo. Cherries, herbs, bark, perfume and subtle tannins. My grilled lamb is singing! Amazing experience. Living happy and large in Athens Greece! Thanks for the recommendation Panos, at Vintage wine bar&bistro.

1999. Pretty and rustic. Tastes sort of like a Piedmont-style red with less backbone. So not really a Piedmont-style red.

Fully mature, with some sweet berries and red licorice on the second half of the finish. Nice, but the sweetness does not change, and I wish it would tweak or change more.
