Skouras Saint George Nemea 2010
The color is bright, deep crimson. The nose reveals aromas 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 nose reveals aromas of blackberries, black raspberries and ripe strawberries with just a touch of anise and spices such as clove and cinnamon. The finish is moderately long, full of red fruits with a touch of sweet vanilla and black pepper.
Firm and juicy, with a tannic grip to the crisp dried berry and cherry flavors, which feature plenty of rich, dark chocolate accents. Finishes with red plum and mineral notes. Drink now through 2016.
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. It probably is at peak this year. Drink now–2015.
