Black violet color. Aromas and flavors of baked apple pie, candied walnut, spiced plums, and black tea with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a medium-length finish with elements of mulberry with firm tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A food-friendly Greek wine with grippy tannins.

Other Greek Red

Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
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.
