2007 Skouras Megas Oenos
Wine & Spirits
A restrained vintage of Megas Oenos, this blend of agiorgitiko (80 percent) and cabernet sauvignon (20) excels in balance, the vivacious acidity keeping the cherry fruit bright red and fresh; foresty herbal notes offer extra complexity and a savory tone. The tannins are very fine-grained and firm, giving you the choice to drink it now or hold off another five or so years. For leg of lamb, cooked just until pink.
Firm, fresh and powerful, with flavors of wild plum, berry and dark cherry. Notes of red fruit confit show mineral and savory accents. Well-structured, with a zesty finish. Drink now through 2015.
Anise, black cherry and allspice aromas give this Cabernet/Agiorgitiko blend a sultry start. On the palate, flavors of smoke, cedar, cherry and spice are integrated and smooth. A wine with panache and indigenous character.
