It's only wine but I like it

I hate to admit it, but I think that this may be the first Greek wine I have bought since I visited Crete in 1988. This red was a very pleasant surprise. Ripe bright red fruits with notes of spice. Quite approachable but enough stucture to keep it from being flabby. Good complexity and a solid finish. A very good wine and a great value at $12.95. I'll be picking up a few more bottles for summer bbqs. I certainly won't overlook the wines of Greece any more!
