This is made from Saperavi grapes from Shumi's Satrabakho Vineyard in Kakheti, Georgia. Purple in color, ruby at the rim, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with black cherries, cassis, char and black pepper. Full bodied. On the palate, this is concentrated and deep. Flavors of black cherries, some cassis with underlying char. Good acidity. Long finish. This is delicious and drinks like a Cab/Zin blend. Very international in style, it is a nice value and should be a popular wine among friends. It drinks great on its own and would work well with burgers or ribs off the grill. drink over the next five to eight years.
