Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer MEGA SPILEO
This is one of 68 items (125 releases) that was not going to be presented for evaluation under new LCBO policies. A final REPEAT of t 2013 that last appeared in Vintages (***/***+) on November 23, 2019 at $29.95 and was Recommended Best Buy. Here is my previous note: Extremely deep intense purple colour. Slightly spicy, somewhat earthy, complex, quite lovely, maturing, ripe, plum-cassis-black-cherry nose with some savoury, sandalwood-cedar notes. Dry, full bodied, well structured, rich, cedary, intense, still quite youthful, ripe, dense, plum-cherry-cassis flavours with a lingering, faintly earthy, complex, mouthfilling finish. This extraordinary blend of 60% Mavrodafni and 40% Mavro Kalavritino was aged for 31 months in oak - 85% French and 15% American. Has 14.5% alcohol and 4 g/L residual sugar with lot number L16222 on the back label. Only 10,000 bottles produced. It is our Vintage Assessments Gold Medal Wine Value Awards winner for 2019 and is not to be missed. CSPC 466110
