This aged very well. Along with blending with another Negoska (never heard of this!), the aging smoothed out the xinomavro a bit. — a month ago
While the Greek name 'xinomavro' translates to 'black acid', this wine was light in tannins and acidity, clean, mellow.
Violets and red plums in summer on ye nose and something more that I cant define. (In the second bottle I got it; artisan made strawberry pop tarts)
More violet but also strawberry on my tongue. Maybe I taste volcanic soil??

Xinomavro with a bit of age. Tannin to the fore and drying edge to the fruit. Perhaps in a closed phase. — a month ago
Fantastic wine. Well balanced, subtle fruit, medium tannins. Easy to drink. At $30, not a value, but worth buying again. I don’t know anything about Greek reds. But this is excellent. Price maybe higher given smaller market. — 17 days ago
This bottle is punching outside it’s weight class. Gorgeous and complex.
The hue is interesting - soft pink like watered down grapefruit. Slightly peachy pink.
The grapefruit trend continues on the nose too, mixed with beeswax and yellow pear skin. Also, do I get bubblegum? Or green apple jolly rancher? Cool.
Quite dry and acidic. Tart but not cringingly so. Apricot and underripe peach dominate but it doesn’t get old at all. Can’t wait to find more of this. — 12 days ago
