This is a big, broad, and spacious wine on the palate with a peppery character along with flavors of sweet oak, roasted coconut, spice, black currant, and a touches of serrano pepper, tobacco, and smoke. The finish is smooth and lingering.
This is a “classic” vintage of Black Russian Red. Saperavi is the primary grape of this wine and it is blended with a touch of the Moldovan grape, Sereksiya Charni. Aromas of black currant, black berry, sweet oak, spice and smoke follow through beautifully on the palate. There are some nice plum and coconut flavors blended in as well. Silky tannins coat the palate and lend to a very pleasant, long finish.
