Estate Parparoussis Nemea Reserve 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Subtle and earthy on the nose with a hint of cigar wrapper and sweet herbs tied to a dusty base of slightly mushroomy and minerally plummy fruit all topped with a hint of sweet cedary oak. Opulent and broad in the mouth, though with fine acidity and good transparency on the midpalate. this is on the more decisive end of the texture spectrum with sharp yet balanced acids and tannins that are softened by time yet remain fairly angular ina delicious sort of way. The palate is a little minty and a touch dried herbal but the core of cherry and strawberry fruit is lovely and bright with a real vivid quality. There’s something vaguely Burgundian about this that carries through the finish which features fresh red fruit, those fine and lively tannins and excellent persistence. 90pts
