The 2011 Santorini seemed exceptional when I first tasted it, but one thing I have learned about Assyrtiko in general – and Sigalas in particular – is that with time they reveal more layers and show you more of what they... The 2011 Santorini seemed exceptional when I first tasted it, but one thing I have learned about Assyrtiko in general – and Sigalas in particular – is that with time they reveal more layers and show you more of what they have. They can seem quite easy to drink young sometimes (and sometimes not!), but they still simply aren't all they can be. The extra time in bottle since I’ve last seen this has done this a world of good. It still shows fine fruit, but the grip and texture is far superior now. It has a concentrated yet very elegant feel to it. It is transparent and persistent. Young and vibrant, it has a long life ahead. Conservative of disposition, I usually suggest that they will last a decade or so from the vintage date, but I won't be shocked if well-stored, top-vintage Sigalas makes 15 or more years the norm for the Estate's upper level wines. Windows like that encompass virtually the entire modern era of the winery, though, so let's continue to take that in stages even while expanding some drinking windows. Drink now-2024. - Mark Squires

This creamy rich white delivers ripe apple and pear flavors that linger with plenty of smoke and spice notes. The luscious finish features accents of mineral aniseed and lemon tarragon. Drink now through 2020. -KM
