Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2010 Megas Oenos is the typical blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) and old vines Agiorgitiko (80%). There was one notable change here, though: less oak impact. It was aged in French oak for 18 months (50% new, the rest second use). Completely undeveloped, it nonetheless seems like a perfectly constructed Megas Oenos, tight at the moment, but certain to evolve well; a bit too oaky just now, but likely to pull itself together perfectly; elegant, but subtly concentrated. It is an impressive performance that might eventually make it ””best in show””, although it is a lot easier to give that nod to the more developed 2006 at the moment. Give this 3-5 years of cellaring, though, to show what it has. After holding it open for a couple of hours, it was far better and came together well. It should age well. I opened this at 7:30 a.m. I began to play with it around 8:45 a.m. It was far better at 1:30 p.m. Drink 2016-2030. (Jun 2014)
