    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

  • Gavalas is a family winery on Santorini making wine on the island since the end ... fruit of the little known Mandilaria grape, perhaps the best bet for red wine on Santorini and one that reminds me of Nero di Trioia mixed with a touch of Aleatico.I tasted these wines at the winery so they are very recent releases. Wines currently in the mark... Read More

  • Iris Rose 2010

    Snoothrank:

    13% - A blend of 80% Mandilaria, 10% Voudomato, and 10% Mavrotragano. Slightly musky on the nose with dark, slightly sour fruit tones and a touch of cured fat top note. Rather high acid on entry with nice fruit edged in austere tannins. The fruit really grows on the palate, all wild berry and gamy with the acidity lending a sour plum aspect tha... Read More

This is cleansing and refreshing and the fruit is nicely covering the structur... Read More

  • Sigalas Niambelo Red 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Strong tannin and oak smell on the nose very similar to a Tempranillo. Slight strawberry and cherry profile. Very dry with boastful oak - light bodied and watery. Slightly overpowered by dry acidity but a delightful finish. Read More
