The 2011 vintage was great. The weather conditions helped to achieve what they had been looking for a long time at Estate Kir Yianni, that is, phenolic mature wines but without a high alcohol content. The absence of heat throughout the summer gave very good acidity and, consequently, wines of deep aging.

In 2019, Diaporos was in the ten "discoveries of the year" of Robert Parker's wine critics for Wine Advocate.

Dense crimson color, concentrated and aromatic bouquet with explosive scents of ripe black fruits, bitter chocolate, tobacco, wood, pepper and carnation, ripe and complex in the mouth, with well-structured tannins, thickness and long aftertaste.
