Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (89)

Review date: March 25, 2017

Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Saperavi is very good and reasonably priced. It opens with an oak, black olive and black currant like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty mild smoky oak with notes of black currant. I also detected hints of gentle black olive and black tea The finish is dry and its moderate tannins build up and last for quite some time. This Saperavi is a very good value and would pair nicely with grilled steak tips. So if you want to try something new, give this Georgian red wine a try! Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Saperavi is Georgia's endemic varietal and has all the noble characteristics making it one of the world's most outstanding red wines. Saperavi is a rich, varietal, fruity wine of bountiful body and great vinosity. The 2013 displays opulent ruby color. Bouquet of black mulberry, blackberry and cherry. Palate echoes with soft oak. Exuberant, yet velvety tannins are well balanced within the entire structure. The wine has excellent expressed vinosity. With age it may develop diamond-crystalline deposits, further showing its noble origin and revered handling. Pairs well with red meat and game fried, grilled and stewed with spices. Excellent with mature cheeses of different styles.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
