The 2015 Assyrtiko is unoaked and comes in at 14% alcohol. Since I first saw this over a year ago, it has blossomed, although even now it took two days to get there. The first day was much like the first taste last year--closed, tight and brooding. Some rest has done it good, though, and with another day in the fridge, it finally started to open and become more expressive. Concentrated and powerful, this finally shows some personality and touches of saline as it warms. It still leaned to dense and steely, though, with fine tension on the finish. It looks now like it will age better than originally anticipated, too, but let's continue to take that in stages. For the regular Assyrtiko, this is very impressive these days. It is not done evolving. If it holds and develops well--it still needs more expressiveness--it may be entitled to an uptick again. (MS)
