Margaret Swaine’s Wine Picks: Greek wines

Kir-Yianni Ramnista Xinomavro 2008
LCBO No. 178020; $18.95 (88 Points)
Xinomavro is a high acid grape producing a red with its own personality — some liken the style to nebbiolo or pinot noir. This deep garnet wine from Greece’s Naoussa region has a berry nose with cinnamon bark notes. The taste is savoury, dry and crisp with flavours of black olive and Cherry Heering liqueur. Firm tannins and solid oak will allow it to age well for years.
