Deep purple color. Earthy aromas of baked blackberry, fresh parsley, spice cabinet, fertile earth, and orange zest with a lightly tannic, vibrant, dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, medium-length black pepper and cured meats finish with moderate oak flavor. A spicy Greek red with table-friendly tannins and a great herbaceous pop; distinctive and fun.

Other Greek Red

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.
