The colour is very deep and intense purple. Οn the nose it is dense, concentrated and elaborate but elegant. Aromas of ripe fruits such as blackberries and black raspberries, spicy characteristics, smoke and notes of leather fill the nose. On the mouth it is silky yet robust and framed by delicate tannins. A balanced acidity offers flavours of ripe fruits, cloves, black pepper and a touch of herbs. The aftertaste is very long and of great complexity.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Megas Oenos is 75% Agiorgitiko and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 18 months in French oak (half new, half used). It comes in at 14% alcohol. Like most of Skouras' offerings this issue, this has a slightly tart edge in its youth and fine mid-palate finesse. Very crisp and silky, it is more Burgundy than Bordeaux. Also like its siblings, this is rather tight, unevolved and lacking in expression at the moment. As it airs, its power comes out well before the fruit. This looks like a beauty in the making, with a very old school feel, but like so many of them, it isn't the easiest of wines to fully appreciate on release. It does have considerable upside potential, perhaps even more than I suspect. Give this some air and time. Given the price point, it will be a huge bargain when it comes around. It is better drunk in three to five years and it will hold well for 10-15 years, or more after that.
