93 Points - Wine Spectator "Run, don't walk, for this wine at this price. Complex, fruity and perfumed aromas lead to rich, elegant blackberry and black cherry, with touches of herb and olive and pretty, toasty oak flavors that make for a smooth, enticing aftertaste. Impeccably balanced, with a long, focused finish. A second label for Axios(which means "worthy" in Greek)." J.L.
