(2021) From Kakheti in eastern Georgia, this is 100% Saperavi and I believe it spends a short time in oak. It's a powerful wine, with some Italian tinned tomato character on the nose, spices and plum. In the mouth there's a twist of liquorice, but fleshy black plum fruit too that is sweet and mouth-filling, maybe event a touch of cocoa in there. The axis of tannin and keen acidity certainly gives it a bit of bite too, long and fresh in the finish.
