TASTING NOTE: Good value in a Greek red with a quite fine, well integrated and pretty if not showy nose of red plum/raspberry jam, fresh herbs, underbrush and wood spice. It is medium-full bodied, quite rounded but not at all sweet, with lowish acid and fine-grained dusty tannin. The wood spice echoes on the finish longest. A bit warm, very good to excellent length.
