Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2010 Porfyros is one-fourth each Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, plus 50% Merlot, aged in French barriques (30% new, 70% 2-3 years old). Sourced from 28-year-old vines, it comes in at 13% alcohol. Modest in the mid-palate, it does have some tannic pop and structure, plus a crisp, raspberry-tinged nuance on the finish. I admit there were moments when I liked this more than my first impression would have suggested, particularly for its flavor profile. It could be a charmer for the mid-term, but it doesn’t have the depth for the long haul.  (Jun 2015)

Wine maker notes
A Topikos Oinos Peloponnese wine. The wine is made within EU guidelines for organic farming. It is a Bordeaux style wine made from a blend of Agiorgitiko (40%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) and Merlot (30%). After fermentation, the wines are barrel aged for fifteen months and bottle aged for twelve months. After maturation, the wines are blended, filtered and bottled. It is full-bodied and dry with vanilla and spicy flavors. It is moderately tannic, high in alcohol, round and balanced with pronounced blackberry flavors.

Producer
Organic wine production is a growing sector of Greek viticulture. Domaine Spiropoulos was established in 1870. The vineyard site is located in Mantinia on a plateau that is 650 meters above sea level. In the 1970’s the Spiropoulos family uprooted and replanted their vineyards with younger vines. An experimental vineyard was also created to save local varieties that were nearing extinction. Since 1993, Domaine Spiropoulos has received numerous medals for its organically grown wines. The Domaine is located in Mantinia, an area in the Peloponnese region. The International Federation of Organic Agricultural Movements has also certified the Domaine’s grapes as a product of organic farming. For more info please visit www.domainspiropoulos.com
