Winemaker's Notes:

A full-bodied red dessert wine that dates back to 1854, Mavrodaphne has a rich yet delicate taste and a Port style aroma with hints of coffee, toffee and rich, spicy nuts. Refined raisin and black cherry fruit flavors are layered with smoky, caramel tones.

I got given this at Christmas.Greek wine cellars was founded by the Kourtaki family in the 19th century and they still own it and it is now Greece's largest wine producer and exporter.The wine is made near the town of Patras from the Mavrodaphne grape,a variety that goes back to antiquity and is unique to Greece.The wine is 15%ABV as it is slightly fortified and has a very sweet and fruity taste reminiscent of dates or raisins.I t would make a good aperitif or a good accompaniment to a plate of bread and cheese which is how I had it.It is a good alternative to a port as it has less alchol and more fruit.The only similar wine I have had is a Banyuls from the South of France

This wine was recommended to me as a good sweet dessert wine so I only have me and my husbands opinion to give. It is very sweet and it packs a punch, there is a lot of alcohol in this wine. However, it is very prune flavored or perhaps raisin flavored with a smokiness. I am not a wine expert by any means its just my 2 cents.

This wine is very sweet. It is actually the sweetest red I have ever had. Raisin in very strong opening into dates. This would be excellent as a desert wine with dark chocolate.

Think figs and molasses and you’ll be close to the flavor of this wine, a rich, heavy red for nut cakes.

A sweet dessert wine produced from the Mavrodaphne grape near the city of Patra. Its production method is similar to that of port wines. The wine is then aged for twelve months in oak barrels. It is medium bodied with a sweet dried fruit and raisin flavor. - Winery

This thick, purple mavrodaphne reserve has gone the way of a tawny Port, age simultaneously lightening and deepening its flavors. Now the fruit is more baked apple and apricot, while the freshness has turned to truffle, spice and deep caramel. Most remarkably, the sweetness has mellowed considerably, giving plenty of ripe flavors while finishing light and clean. Pour it with sweet rusks at the end of the meal.

Fruity and sweet, with good cut to the dark cherry, roasted plum and dried berry flavors. Asian spice and milk chocolate notes linger on the finish. Drink now through 2016.

Deep amber color and concentrated aromas of dates and raisins introduce this clean and balanced Greek dessert wine, similar in style to a tawny Port. The hazelnut flavors last through a smooth finish.

Light and raisiny, with notes of cardamom and cinnamon to the dried sweet cherry and wild plum flavors. A hint of mint shows on the finish. Drink now.

Toasted nut, caramel and sweet cedar aromas are followed by hot, spicy flavors, rounded by sweet cherry and vanilla. Earthy but a touch flirty, this wine has an indigenous appeal.
