Garnet black color. Mature aromas of cherry coulis, dried herbs, tobacco, and marinated mushrooms with a velvety, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a graceful, compelling, medium-long fine oak, nutmeg, and aniseed finish with well-integrated, medium tannins and moderate oak flavor. A drink-it-now Greek red that offers a silky-smooth texture, refined flavors, and big-time pairing potential.

Other Greek red includes Roditis, a red (or rosé) wine made from the eponymous grape that is found in territories such as Macedonia and Thessaly. Roditis is a lighter red that can be served slightly chilled, as it has light tannins. Drink young and pair with meat pies, simple chicken dishes and picnic fare.
