Domaine Karydas Naoussa Xinomavro 2011

8.937 ratings on Delectable
$26.99

The Karydas family sold their grapes for years to Boutari, one of the largest negociants in Greece, but in the mid-'90s started estate-bottling from their 2.6 ha of sandy clay and limestone. This is a full-bodied, structured, and elegantly perfumed Xinomavro.

2011. I don't go in for overly figurative tasting notes but this wine's got moxie, character. It knows what it's about. Others mentioned nebbiolo, but from the Hellenic side of the street. I agree, and with the Greek element comes some brio, some spunk. A wink and a conspiratorial smile. Let's cut to the chase: I really like the wine. $29. 13.5% abv.

Classy, composed Xinomavro . Dark plummy fruit w/ higher than expected acidic structure. Tannins show a grip, but are ultimately silky & knit the wine together quite well. Lacking a little aromatically at first, but opens up nicely after a little air.

It takes a while to open up, much like a Nebbiolo, but once it does - all spice, clove, oregano, blueberry with sea breeze freshness. Food is a must and a bit miffed I didn't decanter it earlier!!
