2016 Yacoubian Hobbs Areni Sarpina, Armenia, Vayots Dzor, Wine Review
This is a collaboration with flying winemaker Paul Hobbs. It is 100% Areni grapes. Deep ruby in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose has cranberries, black cherries, spice and dust. Medium bodied. On the palate, this has some depth. Light tannins. Black cherry fruit with underlying spices. Good acidity. Short finish. This is drinking well now and should continue to do so for five to seven years. It will work well with roasted chicken or turkey.
