Mark Squires - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2008 “Megas Oenos” is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) and old vines Agiorgitiko (80%) aged in French oak for 20 months. Quite tinged by oak in its youth, this elegant wine is still well-structured, showing both the backbone to age and acidity necessary to lift the fruit. The mid-palate is not terribly concentrated, but the wine should come around well, with some potential for improvement in the cellar. A little hard edged at the moment, it could use a bit of time to settle down, even if approachable now. As time went on, it evolved beautifully, becoming a bit more austere, absorbing some oak and showing quite beautifully. Drink 2013-2020. This is a very nice lineup from Skouras this issue. The best news is that there are a lot of nice values. With the exception of the 9906 solera, these all provide some value and some seem like terrific deals if you like their styles. Bargain hunters take note."
