2007 Alpha Estate "Hedgehog Vineyard" Xinomavro
Fresh and juicy, with good definition to the crushed red fruit flavors, most notably plum, cherry and raspberry. The crisp finish is quite spicy. Drink now through 2013.
Aging for nine months in French oak sets this Greek red aside from the pack. It features a complex, bouquet of leather and spices (vanilla, pepper, clove), with hints of ripe blackberry. Full mouth, rounded tannins, balanced acidity and wood tones. Long aftertaste with intense quince aroma. A must for leg of lamb with rosemary.
