Tasting Note:

The 2007 RAMNISTA is a first look, pre-release, based on a winery tasting only. This is beautifully fextured, soft and velvety, ripe and surprisingly rich early on. Lurking underneath is still that Xinomavro crispness and power. It is always best to see how these work after they’ve knit together in the bottle and then had some hours of air, so we will have to give this another look. Still, this looks like a very promising Ramnista, perhaps the best I’ve tasted.
