Tasting Notes:

Darkest, inky purple and mouthwateringly aromatic – redolent of red currant, gooseberry, boysenberry, and the slightest hint of cedar.  Our latest Saperavi is beautifully structured with lively acidity sharing the stage with a plush and creamy mouthfeel layered around pomegranate, dark berry, and stone-fruit notes.  The finish is long and luscious with supple, pleasing tannins and an echo of plum tart.

Vintage Notes:

Winter of 2021 gave us some surprisingly warm days and just enough snow to be protective when the temperatures dipped low.  Early spring was lovely - sunny and mostly dry with undisturbed flowering and fruit set.  Beginning in June, the summer rains arrived and persisted through August.  Once into September and more so in October, we were blessed with warm and dry weather, allowing us to round out our harvest season in good conditions.  The abundant moisture during the summer months resulted in a smaller crop but yielded very fruit-driven and expressive reds and sparkling and bright and refreshing whites and rosés.
