Elios Mediterranean Red Peloponnese 2009

Cost Plus World Market, $8.99

Aaron:  I was excited to try a Mediterranean wine and was happy with the solid, medium body.  The wine was easy to drink and featured strawberry on the nose with some oak.  Gentle earth tones overshadowed blackberry flavors making this pleasant but not necessarily a winner.  87 points

Teri: This Mediterranean red has a mild smell with flavors of blackberry and a hint of chocolate. I received a lot of chalkiness on the aftertaste, which was a bit unpleasant. The wine had good flavor but the tannins were a bit too harsh. 86 points
