Domaine Skouras "Megas Oenos" Peloponnese Red 2013

92 Our Score

(12/30/2016) "The 2013 Megas Oenos is 75% Agiorgitiko and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 18 months in French oak (half new, half used). It comes in at 14% alcohol. Like most of Skouras' offerings this issue, this has a slightly tart edge in its youth and fine mid-palate finesse. Very crisp and silky, it is more Burgundy than Bordeaux. Also like its siblings, this is rather tight, unevolved and lacking in expression at the moment. As it airs, its power comes out well before the fruit. This looks like a beauty in the making, with a very old school feel, but like so many of them, it isn't the easiest of wines to fully appreciate on release. It does have considerable upside potential, perhaps even more than I suspect. Give this some air and time. Given the price point, it will be a huge bargain when it comes around. It is better drunk in three to five years and it will hold well for 10-15 years, or more after that."

Domaine Skouras Peloponnese Moscofilero 2017

91 Wine Advocate
(4/27/2018) "The 2017 Moscofilero (as Skouras spells it) comes in with four grams of residual sugar, 6.2 grams of total acidity and 12% alcohol. The combination makes for a dry wine with a lively feel and vivid flavor. Sourced from vines at 650 meters, this is always crisp and elegant. So, too, this year. Wonderfully aromatic as well in its youth, this is exuberant, gloriously fresh and intensely fruity. The fruit is always lifted, though. Then, it just coats the palate, despite its elegant demeanor. It lingers beautifully on the rather tense finish. On the first day tasted, if it was lacking anything, the fruit was not quite as focused. It was, after all, tasted only about 30 days after bottling. It still has some room to grow, and retasting it the next day clearly proved that. It seemed to answer all questions, barely budging in development but just seeming more precise and focused. This should be a great wake-me-up in the summer, when it will be in better form. It might actually be even more attractive in the spring of 2019. It should also hold nicely for a few years, as past reports have demonstrated, but many won't bother. Being fresh is what this is all about."
