This has some assertive perfumes that combine notes of dried cherries, smoky, earthy tones and the spicy scent of new oak. In the mouth this is quite a structured wine with firm, slightly drying tannins and bright acidity supporting earthy dark cherry fruits. It's a touch rustic in one way yet with noticeable oak seems modern as well. In any event it's very young and can stand some time to soften those tannins but is enjoyable today for it bracing feel. Serve this with food, steak would be a good match. 87pts

Truffles with plums and figs on the nose. There's an undercurrent of meat. Tight attack, which broadens quickly to an earthy wine with strong tannins. Powerful yet supple with cherry flavors. Nice dense finish with a lot of licorice and anise flavors. 2 years in barrel and 2 in bottle, this 03 is the current vintage!

One of Greece's biggest wine exporters, Boutari has the formula for smooth, accessible wines. A soft red color leads to a big but polished Xinomavro with chocolaty flavors of mixed berry, spice and a spritz of lemon. A great match for roast rack of lamb.

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.

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.

Boutari Naoussa was the first bottled wine available in Greece (1879) and is the benchmark among Greece's premium red wines. It has won many awards over the last 50 years both in Greece and internationally. It is also the #1 selling premium red wine from Greece worldwide.

Wine Tasting NotesDeep red. A very intense aroma of olive, cedar, tomato juice, spices and mint. A balanced full-bodied wine with good acidity and a sweet flavor of vanilla, cocoa and berries.

Boutari NaoussaDry Red WineA classic red, using modern vinification techniques, that expressses the destinctive character of the indigenous greek "Xinomavro" grape variety: vivid colour, complex aroma, robust flavour and great ageing potential. Pair with roast meats and chesses.
