Alpha Estate Vieilles Vignes Single Block Reserve Xinomavro 2016 Review

This wine is awesome. Do what you have to do to find this wine. Seriously, whatever you have to do. It is so balanced that if you don’t understand balance, sip this and you’ll know. The acidity is perfect, letting the calm tart fruit of the wine sing while not being overwhelming. If you have ever had a Barolo, then this wine will be very familiar on the palate but it won't cause you to empty your bank account the way Barolo's of this wine's caliber do. It’s at a great price and is drinking very well right now. Go get it.
