Ktima Kir Yianni, Amyndeo (Greece) “Akakies” 2004

($14, Sotiris Bafitis Selections): Rosé season is about spent in my neck of the woods, but this wine is certainly not spent, and it is worth a search for those living in warm climates. Admirably dry and restrained, it features very tasty fruit with red cherries and a bright, almost citrus edge. Faintly spicy, this Xinomavro-based wine is very refreshing and food-friendly, and shows no signs of cracking up or losing its freshness. 87 Michael Apstein Nov 22, 2005
