89 Points – Wine Advocate
"The 2017 Uranos Xinomavro was aged for 18 months in used French oak. It comes in at 13.9% alcohol. This is a refined and understated Xinomavro with an elegant mid-palate, caressing texture and controlled tannins. The intensity of fruit, though, gives it a little distinction. It's laced with ripe blueberries with an underlying hint of almond. If you're looking for one of those rustic and earthy Xinomavros, this is not that style. Just as a wine, though, it tastes great. It should age reasonably well, but I doubt it will be a true long-term wine. It is surprisingly approachable right now. A bit more distinction and focus wouldn't hurt, but it is impossible to dislike this. The only question is whether it might develop into something more. It has a chance to do just that. Let's remain conservative just now." -MS, 12/30/19
