Editorial Reviews for Alpha Xinomavro Reserve Vieilles Vignes
This is rather candied on the nose with aromas of red licorice, necco wafers and tootsie rollls layered over and obscuring the more fruity aromas. Air tempers the sweetness adding in subtle herbal flourishes. A bit weighty on entry, this has a seductive texture, smooth and polished but also subtly tactile with dusty little tannins. the flavors are juicy with acidity and full of red berry fruit that’s a little rusty and wiry. This is tart and firm in the mouth and yet pliant with attractive ripeness of flavor and texture that at the same time keeps the wine firmly on the side of freshness. Eminently drinkable and interesting, this just has a bit of a curious nose. 90pts
