NOSTOS 2010 SYRAH MANOUSAKIS WINERY, CRETE

Crete (Kríti), once the center of the Minoan civilization (c. 2700-1420 BC), is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands. In Greek mythology Crete was the birthplace of Zeus. It is believed wine has been made on Crete for over 3,000 years. The Nostos 2010 Syrah is made by the Manousakis Winery which is known in Europe but was new to us. We were very impressed by the quality of this medium to full-bodied red. One long-time member of the wine staff said this was a "spot-on" classic example of Syrah (not new world jammy Shiraz). On the nose you find blue fruits and fine herbs; in the mouth there are flavors of blackberries and blueberries with a hint of herbs and spice. The finish is long and dry. Serve this with rich beef or lamb dishes.
