The 2019 Ramnista, all Xinomavro, was aged for 16 months in 30% new 5,000-liter French casks (but for a 5% dollop of American wood). It comes in at 13.8% alcohol. I don't often compare producers within tasting notes, but this merits a comment. There are different styles of Xinomavro, just as in other regions with other grapes. A modest contrast in this report is this Ramnista versus the Naoussa from Domaine Karydas. The Karydas is lusher and rounder, seemingly more mouth-coating. The Ramnista is nervier, silkier and a little sharper, showing off its tannins and earthiness just a bit more, yet it is not a truly rustic Xinomavro. It is accessible now, but it could use another year or two in the cellar. They are both well done, different sides of the same 2019 coin. I liked them both about equally well and the pricing is similar. Today, I'd lean to the Karydas. I'm not sure that will be the answer in 2028. Buy some of each, drink the Karydas earlier and let this age another year or two. They are both well-priced beauties that can age. Mark Squires June 22 2023
