Dilao

Amber dry Rkatsiteli Mtsvane 2018

This is always good but different degrees of good year to year. It’s usually full of orchard fruit and tannin and always salty. 2018 I thought was particularly good and concentrated with fresh pressed apricot, apple, and pear. — 9 days ago

Vino Martville

Krakhuna 2017

Dirty, musk, almost like salty sweat but strangely alluring with waves of different notes including savory ones then apple and white tea on the finish. This one made me think. I had to drink a couple of glasses to come to my opinion on it. Initially when I sipped it I thought, “what did I just taste? What did I just drink?” This one will stay with you. Hats off for the complexity. — 15 days ago

Tanini

Qvevri Dry Kisi 2017

Beautiful wine. Great stonefruit on the front, nectarine to be specific. As it opens up honeydew and watermelon rind come forward. It has a dry, tannic finish that is balanced and gives this a very well rounded character. Also, very cool amber shades in the wine. — 10 days ago
