Raspberry red, light to moderate pigment extraction, excellent clarity. Black currant and cherry aromas, light body, alcohol, juicy red fruit flavors with seed and skin tannins on finish. Acidity and fruit remind me of drinking cranberry juice, but this is all grape deliciousness. Quaffable and different, good stuff. Give the tannins a couple of hours to resolve. A licorice-like aftertaste will emerge alongside the red fruit flavor.

Lovely introduction to wine from Crete. Some smokiness and reduction. Black peppery notes. Whig of coffee bean aroma.

First thing I notice is how pale the color is, it looks like a dark rosé, with a brick red color. Nose is very aromatic candied fruit punch, reminds me of some Beaujolais I've had. Very light bodied but flavorful with lots of juicy fruit. Nice bright acidity but not too much, and mild smooth tannins. I drank it too fast to get more detailed notes but I couldn't help it, this is like an even lighter Beaujolais so it is right up my alley and I absolutely loved it. It's unfortunate it seems like an uncommon grape variety and it's more known for its sweet reds. I'll have to keep an eye out.
