Tasting: Greece Is Ready to Go

I was not surprised to read that Lefteris Glinavos founded Domaine Glinavos after having studied enology in Bordeaux - when we first tasted the Vlahiko, we were immediately struck by its resemblance to a fine Left Bank wine with a little age.

Firm red fruit was laced with energetic acid. In addition to granitic minerality, the flavor profile was marked by notes of cassis, currants & herbs. The wine had great structure & weight, but wasn't so serious that it required several hours to decant or several more years to age in bottle. It was ready to go!

I guess it makes sense that after a couple millennia of neglect from the wine-drinking world, that Greek wines would be ready to go. They're here! And they're very decently priced!
