Douloufakis Dafnios 2017 (Greece: Crete) (ID# 3317)

Name Douloufakis Dafnios 2017 (ID# 3317)
Varietal Liatiko
Region Greece: Crete
Notes "Aromas of red currants, dark chocolate and black cherry start this delicious red from Crete. Structured and focused on the palate, its flavors of red berry and spices have a refined overall character." (Wine Enthusiast) Wine Enthusiast: Top 100 Wine of the Year, Rank #73.

Additional Notes

"The 2017 Liatiko Dafnios was aged for 12 months in used French oak. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Round and approachable this year, it is full of flavor, showing plums and black cherries. It is very dry, though, not candied. There is also not a lot of lift to the fruit this year, but it seems fresh enough. It also feels full in the mouth, at least for the price level, and nicely textured as well. It is pretty much ready to drink now." (Wine Advocate)
