Cavino Nemea Grande Reserve 2012

Inky dark in color with a nice black berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice vibrant black fruits to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice dusty tannins and some in balance acidity. The wine straight out of the bottle displayed some noticeable alcohol but this subsided quickly. This is a bigger wine, so be careful what you pair it with . We paired it with striploins and it went very well. I would give it an 88 or so. Quite nice and spot on for this lovely, hearty greek varietal.
