Athene's Greek Restaurant (by eleanor_bueza)

We had this wine in Vancouver with some lamb at Athene’s Greek Restaurant (Kitsilano). I found it quite enjoyable with a good colour and excellent flavour. A full bodied wine that is very good with lamb!

This was a very good red with great flavour. Great oak tones and a lovely colour. Recommended. Apparently this was a great vintage year for Bordeaux.

Not a bad wine. Not as strong as a Cabernet, but it is easy and enjoyable to dirnk.

I was a little worried when I couldn’t find a vintage year, but the wine was pretty good. The initial taste is wild and hits your palette fairly hard, but it finishes off well.
