  • 08 Boutari Kallisti Reserve (Santorini): Smokey, hazlenut vanilla goodness with an acid blast to rock your next scallop dinner. €15 B+ #
  • 06 Boutari Vinsanto (Santorini): A bit too cloying & unbalanced even for this sweet tooth, but those who dig caramel syrup will enjoy €17 B- #
  • 09 Boutari Assyrtiko (Santorini): A fair amount of heft, citrus, & astringency. And by "fair amount," I really mean "maybe too much." €9 C+ #
  • 02 Boutari Kallisti Reserve (Santorini): Like an unsweetened honey-lemon cookie w/ oregano sprinkled on top. But in a totally good way. B+ #
  • 09 Domaine Sigalas Assyrtiko (Santorini): Pure & clean grapefruit & citrus flower goodness, all deftly balanced & screaming for seafood. B #
  • 09 Domaine Sigalas Barrel Assyrtiko (Santorini): Peaches & cream, lemons & flowers, decent & tasty. Still in diapers,w/ a long life ahead B+ #
  • 04 Domaine Sigalas Vinsanto (Santorini): You'll forgive the syrupy-ness for the toffee, honey, orange zest, sultana & general "kick-ass." A- #
  • 09 Argyros Assyrtiko (Santorini): Like a well-written witty movie dialog between Ms. bracing acidity & Mr. oaky mellowness. $20 B+ #
  • 07 Argyros Mavotragano (Santorini): Brambly dark cherry & tough tannic bite make it interesting. Too bad they won't make much of it. $24 B- #
  • 89 Argyros Vinsanto (Santorini): Phenomenal. Brandy, toffee, caramel, roasted nuts, sultana & espresso that you could sniff for days $100 A- #
  • 09 Koutsoyannopolous Assyrtiko (Santorini): Good acidity doesn't make up for subdued fruit & a boozy edge. Oh, what might have been. C #
  • 07 Koutsoyannopolous Abellones (Santorini): Red blend that delives berry cobbler, a nice mouthfeel & (alas) artificial cherry action. B- #
  • 06 Koutsoyannopolous Vinsanto (Santorini): The caramel is achingly sweet, but raisin, prune & toffee await the brave of teeth. B+ #
  • 09 San..Torini Winery Assyrtiko (Santorini): Crisp & approachably "international" in style. Only serious citrus lovers need apply. $22 B #
  • 08 San..Torini Winery Nykteri (Santorini): Assyrtiko that's seen barrel for nutty richness, somewhat at the expense of better balance. B- #
  • 05 San..Torini Winery Vinsanto (Santorini): Vicsous & lucious, with a superb mouthfeel that makes up for wily V.A. peeking out its head. B+ #
  • 07 Canava Roussos Nykteri (Santorini): Apparently they wanted to kill their lemony Assyrtiko with booze and oak, and they almost succeeded C #
  • 04 Canava Roussos Caldera (Santorini): Deep dark & spicy red fruits that honor its island home's deep, dark & hot volcanic namesake. B+ #
  • 99 Canava Roussos Vinsanto (Santorini): You just might mistake it for a sweet PX; a really, really, really damn good sweet PX, that is. A- #
  • 02 Canava Roussos Mavrathino (Santorini): You might not think that liquid fig pudding is a very good thing. In this case, you'd be wrong. B+ #
