This is made from the Khndoghni grape, also known as Sireni in Armenia.  Purple in color, ruby at the rim, inky at the core.  The nose is nice with black cherry fruit, some spice.  Full bodied.  This is a rich, ripe wine without being over the  top.  On the palate, firm tannins.  Ripe black cherry fruit.  Deep.  This could use a couple years of cellar time or else a decant.  Drink over the next eight to ten years.  It will work well with meaty dishes such as beef stroganoff.
