Eastern Europe Reviews

Old Tbilisi NV Alazani White Kakheti
90 points
Best Buy
Golden straw color. Delicate, creamy, fruity aromas of mango papaya custard, plantain chips, and praline with a silky, off-dry light-to-medium body and a silky, charming, medium-length apple sauce, spiced melon, strawberry, and mint finish with no oak. A fun and lively off-dry sipper that will be fun to pair with.

Golden straw color. Bright, toasty, creamy exotic aromas of toasted meringue, baked tropical fruits, and delicate spice with a supple, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and an effortless, appealing, relaxed quince, lemon, and mint cream finish with no oak. An interesting dry white that will shine at the table.

Best Buy
Black violet color. Lively, curious aromas of agave, grilled pineapple, honeyed pomegranate, and mixed peppercorns with a supple, tangy, off-dry medium body and a smooth, compelling, cheery pencil shavings and cinnamon spiced nuts finish with crunchy firm tannins and moderate oak. An entertaining off-dry red that will pair well with BBQ and spicy meat dishes.

Old Tbilisi NV Saperavi Kakheti
82 points
Black violet color. Aromas of carnation, toffee, and dried fruits with a supple, racy, dry medium body and a brisk parchment, berry seeds, and cedar mulch finish with firm hard tannins and heavy oak. A firmly structured red for well marbled meats; make sure to aerate or decant first.
