User Reviews for Karydas Xinomavro Naoussa

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Naoussa, i.e., the Estate Xinomavro with just Domaine Karydas on the label, was aged for 24 months in French oak (40% new, 60% used) and sourced from 35 year old vines. Seeming rather full bodied on opening, with all that Xinomavro acidity and power, this is mouth coating and mouth filling, with classic, Xinomavro flavors and underlying minerality. As it airs, the structure takes over and it seems far less fruity and fleshy. This wine is nowhere near ready to drink, but it actually begins to drink shockingly well the next day, far more expressive then and showing off its fruit, not merely its power. It has the concentration to balance its power. Its flavor profile is classic and there is a lot going on here that is very impressive, which makes it a screaming value for the money. It will be astringent and a bit on the rustic side for awhile, though. Some cellaring will help. When you crack it, remember that it is a food wine, not a simple sipper.
