This is 100% Saperavi grapes made in Kakheti in eastern Georgia and made in Kvevri (amphorae). Very nice showing for this wine. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with black cherries, cherries, and currants. Medium to full bodied with firm tannins. A strong backbone of acidity. On the palate, black cherries, cherries and slight blueberries with light clay notes underneath. Nice finish. This is drinking well now but works better with food. Roasted fowl or mushrooms would be a nice choice. drink over the next five to eight years.
