Even from one of Greece's best producers, Retsina is an acquired taste.

Very cool retsina. Piney, but not pine-sol. Very fun!

This is flavored wine, and not just any flavored wine but Retsina with pine resin as the pine cone on the label would indicate. Very much smells and tastes like Gin, but is very elegant and not overpowering on the palate. I a really enjoyed this. Being my first taste of Retsina, it's going to be hard to top this one!

Whoa! Pine tree in your glass. Olives, thyme, rosemary on the nose and on the palate. So characteristic, very refreshing but definitely and wine to pair with food: lamb dish, olives. Etc

I nOrmally write abOut tannin, acidity level & sO On but, I had such a bad experience with this wine Ima skip prOfessiOnalism. This is the wOrse wine I have ever tried. It leaves a taste Of fresh dirt Or mud in yOur mOuth. Was this On purpOse Or a fluke? Either way it was the wOrse!!

Super weird/different (in a good way). Pine resin flavor present on the finish.
