A nice medium bodied Pinot, lighter and drier than CA Pinot and fuller and jammier than burgundy. First taste was nice but pretty one note. Next day lunch it was much more interesting and complex.

Earthy, almost dirty. Interesting, but good Pinot Noir. Would pick up again.

Earthy, rustic. Old world fill. Dry light on the pallete. Aftertaste is reserved.

Delicious Pinot Noir from Macedonia. Light and earthy with flavors of rhubarb and ripe cherries.

Had this blind and concluded its a pinot noir from warm climate of quite good producer; but was shocked to see its from Greece. Great job!

2015 vintage. 8.9 in general, but deserving of a 9.0 based on price point. Found this hidden gem on sale, my first Macedonian Pinot noir. Great nose (muted at first; alive after 30 mins) of rum-like vanilla and toffee, dried cranberry, and canned cherry pie filling. Palate is a touch extracted, but lush and pleasurable. Smooth cherry-vanilla cola note. A bit hot, but overall very nice for the price, definitely a winner.

We were pleasantly surprised. Raspberry, vanilla. Light and not too powerful but acidic enough. Not so complex
