Domaine Skouras Megas Oenos 2010
Very deep and intense purple. ?n the nose it is dense, concentrated, and complicated but elegant. Aromas of ripe fruit such as blackberries and black raspberries coupled with spicy characteristics, smoke, and a touch of leather fill the nose. On the mouth, it is silky but powerful framed by delicate tannins and gentle acidity offering flavors of ripe fruits, cloves, black pepper, and just a touch of herb.
80% Aghiorghitiko, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Domaine Skouras was established in 1986 by Dijon-trained winemaker George Skouras in Pyrgela, Argos, a quaint village nestled in the Nemea region of the Peloponnese. Skouras began working with both indigenous and international wine varietals and started producing very high-quality Greek wines in the late 1980s. The first bottling of his flagship wine, Megas Oenos, launched in 1988 and was the first wine in Greece to blend Aghiroghitiko with Cabernet Sauvignon. At over 3,400 feet, Skouras also boasts one of the highest red-wine vineyards in all of Europe.
