The 2008 MERLOT / XINOMAVRO (the cuvee formerly marketed as “Evinos”) is a 50/50 blend, with each grape separately fermented and then aged in French oak (Allier and Nevers) for 12 months. Elegantly constructed but a bit marked by oak early on, it absorbs the oak well. Boutari’s style tends to tame the Xinomavro and the Merlot adds its little bit of lushness, too, so early on it seems velvety and surprisingly easy. That said, there is a bit of steel and power underneath here that still manages to be reasonably integrated while notable. I began to enjoy the crispness and penetration as this opened up. It is not at all concentrated, but it evolves well and becomes more complex, nuanced by hints of earth and game. It shows more intensity than was initially apparent after time in the glass. This starts as an easy drinker, and becomes something a bit more. Drink now-2017.
