About

91

"The 2012 Xinomavro Hedgehog Vineyard is the latest iteration in this bargain-priced brand, also part of this issue's focus on Amyndeon terroir. It was just recently released. It was aged for 12 of months in French oak (half new, half used). The Hedgehog is a perennial value point in the lineup these days, a wine that always provides value with some distinction. This is another beauty. Perfectly focused, it is tight and pointed, yet deep and rather lush, relatively speaking. Its oaky initial demeanor faded with aeration, leaving a wine with increasing purity of fruit. This overachiever could benefit from another year or so in the cellar, but it combines power, fine concentration and balance. It's worth leaning up."
