Crete on Snooth

  • Domaine Douloufakis Vidiano Dafnios 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Frosty notes of honeyed lemon and light pear on the nose are inviting and show a bit of heat and spice. The spice continues through to the mouth where it is joined by tart lemon and tangerine flavors, a hint of butter on the back palate, some lingering pear and tart lemon custard. Read More

  • Not a good time to bring up the Clips again.  Ouch.Okay, Terra d'Oro ... ... Kostifali, a red from Crete that is like a much better version of Merlot, IMO, and a glass or two from a Chenin/Viognier blend, also Montevina/Terra d'Oro.  At this rate, I might have to drive across the state again to stock up on Amador win Read More

  • Boutari Assyrtiko Santorini 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose with a hint of tar laying under notes of dried peaches and preserved lemons. Very smooth and polished in the mouth, theres good acidity here and fine underlying minerality but this has a richer mouthfeel than most whites from Santorini, a mouthfeel even a Chardonnay lover could be attracted to. The flavors lean towards the mine... Read More

  • Lyrarakis Dafni 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A bit soapy, and stony, and slighty chemical smelling in a cherry, melon, banana peel and sweet gum sort of way. this smells faintly of balsam with a bit of bone meal thrown in for good measure. After having said all that, this does smell good. Low and broad on the palate with integrated acidity supporting unusual grapefruit, strawberry and chal... Read More

  • Sitia Union of Agricultural Cooperatives Sitia Crete Red 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Spicy red fruit on the nose blended with some woody musk. Fruit forward in the mouth, showing tart(ish) red cherry. Simple, but with a good balance of acidity and medium tannins. Read More
