Editorial Reviews for Skouras Red Blend St. George
This is a great introduction to Agiorgitiko. It's classically styled with soft acids but not too chunky allowing the red berry fruits to take center stage. It's got some snap to it so don't think this is flabby and it offers up some toasty notes and a hint of underbrush on both the nose and the palate. This could use some more length and elegance but is a solid red. 88pts

External Reviews for Skouras Red Blend St. George
An elegant, powerful red, with luscious flavors of red plum, black fig and dark cherry. Intense cocoa powder notes carry through to the minerally finish, with some cigar box.
The color is bright, deep crimson. The nose revealsaromas of blackberries, black raspberries and ripe strawberries with just a touch of anise and spices such as clove and cinnamon. It is a medium bodied wine with graceful texture, balanced acidity and very ripe elegant tannins. The finish is moderately long, full of red fruits with a touch of sweet vanilla and black pepper.
"The 2010 Saint George is an entry level Agiorgitiko (spelled by Skouras in an alternative transliteration as “Aghiorghitiko”). This is always a solid buy, consistent, with elegance and purity, although never with much concentration or power. It is quite attractive this year as well. The silky texture, a product of the acidity, is quite sensual and the wine is fragrant and a pleasure just to smell. Its graceful mid-palate is part of its impeccable balance, along with the subtle tannins. The cherry nuances are cut by the acidity nicely. It doesn’t develop much and isn’t going anywhere, but for an early maturing, entry level wine it is quite charming, drinking beautifully now and at its best in the short term…Bargain hunters take note. - Wine Advocate
