Nice Greek Sauvignon showing melon, apple and peach aromas more than piquant citrus. Offers fine balance, with the acidity propping up apple, honeydew and peach flavors. Fairly chewy and round, with a finish that’s slightly warm but satisfying. Could be nice with a salad of tomatoes and feta followed by grilled whole fish. Imported by Fantis Imports, Inc.
An ambitious effort, with plenty of tasty oak influence in the form of coffee and vanilla aromas and flavors. Fruit is ripe and soft; tannins are supple and harmonious, giving the impression of immediate drinkability.
The nose starts a bit funky and earthy, but clears to reveal scents of blueberry pie and grape jelly. Full in the mouth, it has a soft, smooth feel with acidity to give it a lift. The blueberry compote flavors are a bit hidden by heavy tannins, but drink this with a steak or rack of lamb and watch the tannins melt away.
An earthy but slightly sweet nose leads into flavors of meat, clove and dark fruit in this beautifully colored, well-balanced Merlot. The structure is good and the finish lingers with lush fruit.
