A Sweet Finish- Canava Roussos Vinsanto Santorini 2006

The second Greek wine I tasted over the weekend was Canava Roussos Vinsanto Santorini, a dessert wine.  We uncorked the bottle after dinner and it made for a sweet finish to our meal!

Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine

This sweet wine pours a burnt amber color in the glass.  It has a bouquet of raisins and figs with a hint of caramel.  The palate is sweet but not overbearing.  There are tastes of caramel, fig, and citrus.  The citrus notes do a great job of balancing the sweetness of the wine.  A nice way to end a meal!

My Wine Rating- B

Food Pairing Suggestions- Sip on its own after a meal or pair with dark chocolate or a fruit plate.
