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. This wine was matured in oak barrels for three full years.
This vintage of Cabernet Franc is dark red, aromatic and complex. It has aromas and flavors reminiscent of ripe red and black berries, cherry, cocoa, bell pepper, graphite, smoke, dust and dry leaves. It is medium bodied, with fine tannins that help the wine linger nicely on the palate. This wine is still very young and the fruit character is still a bit in the background. Open the bottle for at least a few hours if you have the opportunity. Drink now through 2028.
