Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Naoussa has evolved beautifully, even better than I thought it would, and I have to say - it is quite a deal. This bottling is usually a fairly refined Xinomavro that manages to show some steel, elegance and balance at the same time, and that is certainly true in 2007. At its very attractive price point, it is a steal and I have come to think that it consistently offers a lot of value. Some may prefer their Xinomavros a little more rustic, but this bottling has fine sensibilities. Drink now-2023.

Wine SpectatorA firm, focused and powerful red, with dried cherry, graphite and sanguine flavors. The beefy finish is muscular, with plenty of tannins. Xinomavro. Drink now through 2015.
