One of these for us for the next few evenings this week - a 2018 Thymiopoulos Naoussa Xin.
This is I think the 3rd or 4th of these I’ve gone through now, and this is probably the best to date - in a very good place right from the off, though I’m sure lots to come yet of this bottle and of the others in the stash.
Quite sweet but not too much so, obvious but harmonious fruit kept in check with that nice Xin dryness, that slight tomato leaf thing, and the tannins behaving nicely - there & obvious most certainly, but quite calm for how they can be with some of these at such a relatively youthful age. For my tastes, all very nicely in balance, and hard to think of a better red wine for the money in my book and to my tastes, especially on this mellow slightly Autumnal evening.
Another 9 to go, probably at 1 or 2 a year.
