A blend of Xinomavro and Negoska varieties from the Goumenissa A.O.C in Greece, this wine displays a rich nose of wood, cola and red fruit. On the palate, fine-grained tannins and a spicy, dry, red fruit and wood profile mean the wine can age. The finish is long and aromatic. Pair with strong cheeses, roasted meats.
