2020 vintage. Mavrodaphne is a Greek grape that is, by dictum allowed to be made only into a sweet wine. While this style has its followers, there are mavericks who discovered that this grape can make an excellent dry red wine. Yannis Papargyriou's The Black Daphne is a convincing statement to promote dry Mavrodaphne This is a rich, dark red wine with notes of plums, cherries, coffee, chocolate, cedar and leather with undertones of Greek mountain herbs and brush. The wine finishes long with a sweet balsamic and cigar notes. Well integrated tannins. This is a wine that will delight you now, but another 5 years in the cellar won't hurt.
Pair with game, grilled red meats and hard cheeses.
