Thymiopoulos Young Vines Xinomavro 2020

Inky dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine packs a punch with big black berry notes along with some dark chocolate. On the medium length finish the wine displays firm peppery notes, tannins and acidity … nice and dry. This is not as coarse as some Xinos but it’s a definitely a bigger wine. Paired with blue cheeses it went REALLY well and complimented them nicely hiding the sharper notes. I paired it with lamb chops and it was more subtle with food. Xinos are often bigger wines, and I would give this one an -88, if you haven’t had one it’s a good one to try. To my tastes, and I don’t mind a bigger wine, this is a drink now, but it may keep a couple years and hold up … From the lcbo web site, check stock:

Product Details

Apostolos Thymiopoulos, the winemaker behind this superb Xinomavro, was named the Decanter Rising Star in 2022. This wine is a blend of fruit sourced from sites on both the warmer lower and cooler upper slopes of Mount Vermio, where altitude and cooling breezes aid in the balanced, even ripening of the grapes. Look for ripe red fruit and savoury herbs, with a crisp acidity.
