Great example of this noble black grape of Northern Greece, Xinomavro!
On the nose, Mediterranean herbs, tar & roses...on the palate- classic characters of black olives, sun dried tomatoes, dried plums, sour cherries...hint of mushroom, truffles with great acidity and tannin. Needs food like lamb, something Gamey or truffle risotto. Comes from .5 of a hectare in the region of Naoussa. Loved it!

Really shockingly good, have been burned by new Greek wines before and this does the opposite - standout earthy bottle with a lot of complexity. Definitely buying again.
