This dry red wine blends the heirloom Greek variety, Agiorgitiko (Ah yor yee` ti ko), grown in the region of Nemea which has a long wine making history, with the well known Cabernet Sauvignon.  Aged in French and American oak barrels.  It has an intense red color with crimson shades, a fruity, full, round body and a long finish. Cherry with vanilla and tobacco notes, accompanies dried fruit with an under layer of green peppers. Its high acidity provides a tannic balance, making it soft and long.  


Pairs exceptionally well with red meats, cheeses, tomato sauces, and spicy dishes.  


Best served at 60 – 64 o F.
