Kir-Yianni "Ramnista" Naoussa Xinomavro 2013

92 Wine Advocate
93 Wine & Spirits
(8/2017) "This displays xinomavro's magical ability to be both mouth-crushingly tannic and seductively delicate at once. It works because those tannins are filled with flavors, powering the wine through a forest's worth of truffle and dried cherry scents, while hints of leather and roses make the sides of your mouth juice up. Decant this if you open it now, and serve with something rich and fatty, like pork shanks; otherwise cellar it for ten years."

Alpha Estate "Hedgehog Vineyard" Xinomavro 2015

(6/29/2018) "The 2015 Xinomavro Hedgehog Vineyard was aged for 12 months in an equal mixture of new and second use French oak and comes in at 12.8% alcohol. If you want to know why this region and grape have a reputation for acidity, this issue certainly shows you. This is one good example. Silky yet fruity, without a lot of concentration but with enlivening lift to the fruit and plenty of power, this has all those old-school Xinomavro nuances of earth and amber to go with the big hits of acidity. These types of Xinomavro make me think 'Nebbiolo' every time. In fact, this often seems to have more rusticity than Alpha's upper-level (and typically more refined) Vielles Vignes bottling. When these old-school types come down the road, you are best off letting them rest a bit and coming back in a few years. The acidity and tannins will preserve them for a long time, perhaps longer than expected, so there is no rush. This is a fine value that does a lot of great things that wines in this price category often do not-but you will need some patience, and it does have to be your style. Drink Date: 2020 - 2035."

Alpha Estate Florina Sauvignon Blanc 2017

90 Wine Advocate
90 Our Score
(11/2018) This is the fifth vintage in a row we've featured of the Alpha Estate Sauvignon Blanc and it's another big-time winner. Wine Advocate writes that this 2017 is "beautiful in its herb-tinged flavor and character" and "it is hard to stop drinking it if you are a Sauvignon Blanc fan." We totally agree with both the flavor profile and the appealing character of this favorite from Greece. The wine will be rolling to 2018 vintage soon, so if you're one of the many Alpha Estate fans in our customer base, grab a few bottles of the 2017 now so you won't miss out!
