Greece’s white wines have been gaining a lot of attention of late, but the reds continue to be (unjustly) ignored. The 2010 Tetramythos Agiorgitiko ($15) is a wonderful introduction, whether you can pronounce the grape’s name or not (it’s “ah-jee-or-jee-TEE-koh”). Dark cherry flavors blend with just enough acidity and some nice earthiness. Try it with moussaka, hearty pastas, lamb burgers or hard cheeses.
