The 2015 Assyrtiko de Mylos Vielles Vignes, an unoaked bottling, is dry and comes in at 14.5% alcohol. The wonderful Tselepos and Sigalas provide some strong compe-tition, but this just might be the unoaked wine of the vintage. This was my first-day winner. On retasting them on the second day, it was a closer call, but this showed brilliantly then, too, and kept getting better as it aired out and warmed. This is certainly the richer and sexier of the trio, but it also has wonderful tension on the finish. Very concentrated and rather gripping, this still maintains its balance while delivering impressive fruit to the palate. This Big Boy has been bigger (and less balanced) in the past-but this year it combines its concentration, amazingly luscious fruit and persistence with good balance, too. That makes it a super-star. Did I mention that it is also completely delicious? The only remaining question is how it will age. I think it will hold nicely. It must to justify my current enthusiasm, to be sure. 95 points ROBERT PARKER
