If you haven’t had an Agiorgitiko before, it’s a big bold Greek wine, a perfect companion for steak, and this one is no exception. Inky dark in color with a dark cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with vibrant dark cherry notes along with some mocha and dark chocolate. On the medium length finish the wine displays firm tannins and acidity … nice and dry! Definitely more of a bigger wine, so watch what you serve it with or your not tasting the food. We paired it with a grilled striploin. If you are use to smooth elegant wines … ya this so isn’t that. I would give it an 88 or so … which for the price is a good deal! This particular ones come in to the LCBO often … from the LCBO web site, check stock, and even better … it’s on sale! Act now!
