Alpha Estate 2007

89 points

Florina, Greece. 14%

Syrah 60%, Xinomavro 20%, Merlot 20%.

The best Greek wine I think I have ever tasted. Still youthful. Fresher more herbal than most wines from the South of France. Excellent balance. Just marred by a touch of raisin.

That said, Next to it Turkey Flat Shiraz 2006 just sang. Richer deeper yet without any raisin.
