Skouras Saint George Agiorgitiko Nemea, 2021

I have had virtually no experience with Greek wines. As a result, I was baffled when looking over the list of wines by the glass at the new Dimi's Greek House restaurant in Kalamazoo. All of the wines on the list, red and whie, were Greek so I asked for advice from the waiter who recommended this Saint George Agiorgitiko. It was a good choice and matched well with the delicious lamb shank entree.

Medium light red. Reminds me of a good Southern Rhone. Red fruit smells and flavors--strawberry, red cherry with a spicy edge. Medium to light body, high acid, medium to light tannin. I get some complexity in the red fruit, black pepper finish.
