Mmm Georgian cheese bread

Kindzmarauli Semi-Sweet Saperavi 2019

My first taste of the Georgian Saperavi grape and I like it.

It starts dry but quickly turns purple plum juicy and into a sweet finish.

Try a fully dry Saperavi—totally different taste. You’ll love it!

Marani Saperavi 2017

QFC, $17

My first Georgian wine, I agree with another reviewer in that it reminds me of an Italian appassimento - it's very jammy/plum and tastes like it was made with dried grapes. Also a little smokey and has a slight sweet spice with herb notes like mint. Really good for the price and I love the complexity.

Meskhuri Tetri White Dry Unfiltered Qvevri Wine

Fun Georgian foraged wine. Surprisingly smooth for a foraged grape, taste like a great French natural wine. Ate with grilled chicken with asparagus and ramps. — 2 months ago

Saperavi Qvevri 2019

This excellent Saperavi Qvevri is from the Alazani Estate Winery, not the Alazani Winery. It hit all the notes that a Saperavi should hit. It began with dried cherry, and then transitioned to that unusual bite that Qvevri wines have, ending with smooth tannins. Classic Georgia, tasty and different from wine anywhere else. Perfect with one of those unpronounceable Georgian lamb stews or Persian food. Decant for 1 hour. — 2 months ago

Ararat Valley Haghtanak 2016

My first Armenian wine. Made with Haghtanak grape, a Soviet-era hybrid between Armenian varietals and Georgian Saperavi. From vineyards in the Ararat Valley, 35 km west of Yerevan. Fermented in steel tanks and aged 7 months in Caucasian oak barrels. Dark ruby/purple color. Dark fruit, vanilla and oak on the nose. Some herbal notes. Full-bodied, big, quite bold and round on the palate. Pomegranate flavors. Tannic. Good value — 3 months ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Blanco Malvasia Viura 2005

Georgian food night - for me cuisine calls for oxidative wines given the local style & winemaking and LdH Todonia blanco fit the bill perfectly. Awkward on pop n pour, came around by the evening. Brilliant copper gold, beeswax-oxidative-walnut accord. Roasted pear. Buttressing lemony acidity. Medium finish. 😍 @Delectablewine Delectablewine this is the blanco - bug won’t let me change the identified wine. — 5 months ago
