Dougos Methistanes 2006

Thanos and Louisa Dougos did us a favor by giving a few bottles of this excellent wine that can only be found at their winery's cellar where it continues to improve. Methistanes is today's Rapsani Old Vines, since till 2008 the winery was not licensed to produce Protected Designation of Origin Rapsani wines. Today, Methistanes are practically replaced by 2 PDO Rapsani labels, the Old Vines from over 50 years old vineyards and Rapsani without this designation since it comes from young vines. Methistanes demonstrates the Rapsani Old Vines dynamics and the aromatic complexity impresses, as on a background of ripe tomato, we recognize cedar, rosemary, cherry, strawberry and blueberries. And if the freshness of the aromas excites, the mouth feel steals the spotlight with its elegance and severity that combined with the melted tannins make up an exciting taste.
