Boutari Xinomavro Naoussa Macedonia 2005
Editorial Reviews for Boutari Xinomavro Naoussa Macedonia
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
