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.

The nation of Georgia in eastern Europe, is perhaps the birthplace of wine production. Today, there are many fine reds produced in the country, primarily from indigenous varieties such as Saperavi, Tavkveri and Alexandria; Cabernet Sauvignon, an international variety is also planted.

Saperavi is arguably the finest red wine of Georgia, as it has ripe berry and cherry fruit, very good richness on the palate and substantial tannins; in fact, it is often blended with other red varieties to soften the tannic bite. It is also blended at times with Cabernet Sauvignon; wines such as these can aged for decades. Pair most examples of Saperavi with grilled meats, game birds and aged cheeses.
