The accent here is on the fruit, rather than the more typical Greek salad notes of tomato and oregano. It's still...

Medium light ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose.
A smooth wine with good quality & the nose is to die for

Positives: This complex wine features pine, roses, blackberry, Bing cherry, raspberry, Star anise, Allspice, cinnamon & turn tamarind. Medium+ body and tannins, with good acidity, a long length and the alcohol is well integrated.

Negatives: None

Interesting Point: The name 'Earth and Sky' appears on the label in Greek, German, French, Japanese, English, and what appears to be a pictograph.

Drink now or in the next 3 years and pair it with Ruth Chris steak.

Tasted: 26 April 2014

Score: 9+/10, Value: 9.5/10, Total: 19/20

Top Pick, Best Buy

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 4+

agree with Szabo that tannins are very firm but lots of potential in flavor and complexity, I will wait another year and try again, expect that it should reach 90 or more by that time
