"Year in and out, Boutari's Grande Reserve sets the mark for Naoussa in a traditional style. The 2008 excels in a vintage memorable for a summer of drought and heat spikes: The wine is moderate in its fruitiness, balanced more toward fresh mushroom than cherry. The earthy and herbal notes give it a complexity that's riveting for minutes after each sip; the tannins are firm but fine, giving the wine a gauzy finesse. "
"This integrated red from Greece's premium red wine country offers all of the hallmarks of the variety but is still pleasing to the international palate. Aromas of tobacco, anise, cherry and smoke lead, followed by spicy but balanced flavors of coffee, smoke, dark berries and pepper. Can age but good to drink now. Pair with heartier dishes."
