Skouras Moschofilero 2011

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The 2011 MOSCOFILERO was rather tightly wound when I first saw it, needing time to come around. Despite having played with it for awhile, I still didn’t see all this had to offer when I first saw it not long after release. On a recent taste a few months back, it had improved to the point of showing its depth and power, especially when held open for a couple of days when it showed better. It is quite persistent for a Moschofilero (remember, Skouras uses an alternative transliteration). Yet, it was, remarkably, still unevolved, still tight, and not yet fully expressive, showing signs that it could improve significantly. I am thinking that this is a Moscho that actually would benefit from being drunk in the summer of 2013, rather than in the summer following its release. If I am wrong and it goes nowhere else, it is and was a very fine value at this price point. Drink now–2015.

A rapierlike white, delivering apple, pear and grapefruit flavors flanked by plenty of mineral and slate notes. Ripe orange accents linger as plenty of spicy hints mark the vibrant, long-lasting finish. Drink now through 2018.
