2018 Saperavi Reserve
McGregor Saperavi: America's first success with Saperavi. Thick and opaque, this wine has a deep ruby color and very complex aromas and flavors; it’s a smooth wine with attitude. The aromas are reminiscent of spice, oak, smoke, and black and blue fruits- ripe plums, blueberries, black currant, and elderberry. It also has hints of a woodsy/mossy/fresh soil character. It 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 wine can be cellared at least to 2030-2035.
