Varietal: Mavrodaphne 
Year: 2018 

Wine & Spirits, 94 Points 

"Mavrodaphne was traditionally used for dessert wines in Greece. Evriviadis Sclavos broke with that tradition in 1996, launching his dry version. Made from old, own-rooted bush vines farmed biodynamically since that first vintage, this 2018 is soft and velvety. It smells like a red from Cephalonia’s mountains, with notes of bay laurel, wild berries, limestone, cinnamon bark and sea salt; it feels quiet, contemplative, with nothing pushed or showy about it. It’s compelling, and sustains that interest for days after opening." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"The wine produced has excellent density and dyeing capacity but also delicious tannins. The character is robust, winey, with a long aftertaste that evokes the aromas of ripe forest fruits and the influences of vanilla." 

Alcohol: 13%
