Kokkinos xinomavro bottle

Xinomavro 2013

Kokkinos Estate

Light ruby-red color fainting to a light hint of tobacco. On the palate, the wine expresses powerful acidity and tannins with a long finish and sour cherry flavors.

Reviews

  • "90 points. The 2013 Naoussa is a Xinomavro (of course) that was aged for 15 months in well used French barriques. It comes in at 14% alcohol. Sourced from vines ranging from 15 to 35 years old, this is most notable for the lovely freshness it shows. It is not quite as concentrated as the 2011, but it is exuberant in its youth, bright and lively. It's pretty delicious, too. Overall, this is a vintage that combines fine structure and consumer appeal. It should be approachable relatively young, but it will age well, too. There were 16,000 bottles produced."
