This one is just this side of cough syrup. Smells of honey and ripe fruit. Tastes like cough syrup. Just overpowering sweetness followed by a jolt of alcohol. It’s almost more like tasting Limoncello than wine although the flavor is entirely different. Not too much else to it, don’t know if I’d try it again. I’ve had some great Greek wines, this just isn’t among them.
