2 AND 1/2

"We loved the 2013, this not so much. My wife did not like it, I thought it was OK, but just pizza wine. 91 would be VERY generous."

NOT TYPICAL VINHO VERDE...

"We had vinho verde in Portugal, a light, bland, slightly bubbly sipper. This is quiter a bit more than that. We're getting more, and 4 stars may be a bit stingy at the price."

SHOULD AGE WELL

"Very nice, still young, as WS notes, could improve over the next decade. We bought half a case after the first bottle, will buy more... Could be the best wine we've had from NY."

GROWS ON YOU...

"A bit austere at first, but it opens up nicely in the glass. Perhaps we should have decanted it? Very nice with asian food."

GOOD RED FROM GREECE?

"We had the 2012 tonight, worth buying as a food friendly red in the cabernet franc grouping. Plenty of body and flavor for us, probably one that the california cab folks would describe as rustic..."

Posted on Jan 22, 2018
TRY THIS IF YOU LIKE CABERNET FRANC

"We had the 2013, really a nice bottle, and excellent with food. We'll try the 2015 as well, you should too."

PIZZA WINE

"either not as good as spectator thinks, or needs that additional time they mentioned. ordinary in the fall of 2017"

Posted on Oct 19, 2017  [Verified Purchase]
5 STARS
