Boutari Naoussa 2007
Typical, classic wine of Naoussa. Deep red colour with an intense personality. It produces a rich bouquet of ripe red fruit, blackberry and plum, together with sun-dried tomato and the aromas derived from ageing, cinnamon and wood. A rich body, good balance and structure, soft tannins in its finish. Food pairing: Best served with red meat dishes, pasta with red sauces and with yellow cheeses.
External Reviews for Boutari Naoussa
A delicate red, with an interesting array of dried cherry, chocolate and kirschlike flavors. The mature-tasting finish has plenty of smoke and beef notes, with touches of orange peel. Xinomavro. Drink now.
Smoky with scents of smoldering wood, oolong tea and dried roses, this is lean and chewy, with flavors that recall wood-roasted cherries. The fragrance doesn't last long, but the light texture makes it a good choice for roast game birds.
Decant this before serving to coax the gentle, mouthwatering herbal notes from xinomavro's chewy, ferrous flavors; then serve with something as meaty and gamey as the wine, like lamb or venison. Or cellar it for six to ten years, to allow it to soften and become more complex.
