Kir-Yianni "Ramnista" Naoussa Xinomavro 2013

Email
Sub-Region: Naoussa
Region: Macedonia
Color: Red
Country/State: Greece
92 Wine Advocate (8/30/2016) "The 2013 Ramnista tops off this issue's vertical. It was aged for 18 months in French oak (different vineyard blocks are aged separately for the first 12 months, then blended for the last six months into the same barrels). This is the new vintage, not yet arrived, but scheduled sometime in the spring of 2017. In general, it looks like a good year in the region and so, too, here. Big and full bodied, this has plenty of fruit to balance out the tannins, but it is no surprise that it is drying on the finish and unevolved. Surprisingly lush just now, this wine is likely to close up as its power takes over. It looks lovely just now, but prepare to cellar it, not drink it."
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."

We are in Westridge Court, at the intersection of Rt. 59 and Aurora Avenue. Our center is on the east side of Rt. 59 on the part of the center that faces Aurora Avenue.

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
