Katogi Averoff Xinomavro Naoussa 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Katogi Averoff 2008 Xinomavro is a dark ruby in color and offers rich aromas of fruit, pepper, mint, spice and earth character with medium-to-full body, silky texture, fine tannins and a lovely finish. Pairs well with lamb dishes."The 2008 Xinomavro Averoff was aged for approximately a year in barrel and then held back for late release. Classically earthy on the nose, with a touch of mushroom, it has an elegant demeanor, with a modest mid-palate and very bright acidity around the edges. Purity of fruit is a hallmark here. It has no artifice. Tannins do pop out with air, so don’t hesitate to cellar this as it may well improve a bit with time. With air, this improved notably, fleshing out and showing better texture. It needed to do so, because it was a bit thin and sharp early on. This should make a great food wine, but note that it is not going to be your casual, easy sipper. It should seem like a lot of wine for the price, though, if you like its style (yes, traditional Nebbiolo admirers – I’m speaking to you.)" -eRobertParker.com
