Dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some lovely black cherries. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice smooth tannins and acidity. This is a nice dry wine! This is a well made, smooth, food friendly cab. Quite impressive. The wine is made from 90% cab and 10% Aghiorghitiko (St George) and comes from vines that are more than 30 years old. I would give this wine an 88+. Currently none in stock at the LCBO. Hopefully more will come in. A great example of a cab from Greece! The LCBO say full bodied and smooth … I whole heartedly agree!
