Editorial Reviews for Elios Mediterranean Red
40% Agiorgitiko, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah A bit flat on the nose with faint notes of smoky basil stems and old wood supporting slightly tarry black cherry fruit. Soft, round and fruity on entry, this gains some definition in the mouth as the integrated acidity becomes more obvious and the gentle tannins kick in. There’s some pleasant black cherry fruit here, a bit skinny but focused with black currant notes on the backend that lead a nicely austere little finish. Fun and yet not frivolous, this is a bit fruity sweet and then a bit austere. 85pts

This Agiorgitiko and Syrah blend is an earthy mélange of pepper, blackberry and cherry aromas and flavors of black fruit, red cherry and vanilla spice. Balanced and focused, it’s a wine for sipping and pairing with food. Think pork or lamb.
Shows aromas of fresh raspberry, with flavors to match, along with plum and boysenberry. Supple and juicy on the finish, with notes of milk chocolate. Agiorgitiko, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now.
