Blackberry, cherry and cedar start this rich, elegant red from Tselepos. On the palate, rounded flavors of cedar, vanilla, black berry and spice are well integrated and juicy. The wine finishes with touches of wood and smoke.

Argyros 2013 Estate Assyrtico (Santorini)

  1. $35

Zesty lemon, minerals and sea salt on the nose lead into fresh, balanced citrus fruit and spice on the palate. Bracing, but offering attractive fruit body, the wine has poise and food-driven panache. An excellent example of what the variety can do. Pair with grilled seafood and poultry.
