Dry, full bodied, with that stick in your mouth finish that is heady but not overwhelming. Notes of dark fruits, inky and earthy in the mouth. The polish of french oak combines well with the earthy characteristics which are a trademark of Georgian wine — 5 days ago
Unfortunately my initial review got deleted, and I had written up one my favourite reviews in a long time. Slightly disheartening but oh well. saved this bottle for quite a few years and tonight was the night. It was decanted for 2 hours. Beautiful aromas of dark fruit, earthiness and leather, inviting you to taste the delicious fruits fermented within.
Initial notes of dark plums, dark succulent cherries and blackberries. There is a definite hint of dark chocolate. Followed by roasted red pepper and anise spices provided by the Syrah. These flavours paired well with the bold and slightly herbaceous tannins from the petit verdot. Finally smooth, lingering notes of finely aged leather, fresh tobacco leaf, hints of smoke and fresh earthiness danced along the back of my palate. This was truly an exquisite wine, achieving the rare feat of producing a bold, heavy, complex wine that is simultaneously well balanced and elegant. Served with filet mignon (medium rare), classic Caesar salad and Portabello mushroom stuffed with goat’s cheese and cherry tomatoes with a balsamic fig reduction. Easily could have cellared for another 5 years. — 5 days ago
This wine is a truly enjoyable experience. This wine is deep and complex, rich and velvety, with notes of deep, dark fruit and a sweetness that is non offensive and almost port like. This wine is perfect for a spicy steak dinner or curling up in front of a fire on a cool night — 5 days ago
Fruitier than I expected, but I like it. Plus, the bottle art screams “death to 2020.” — 2 days ago
I've always been a lager guy, but I'm so glad I tried this Millstream Stout.
5% oatmeal ( yeah, who thought of that?), adds to the heavy taste of this brew. Roasted black malt provides the color. Taste of strong coffee and yet, very smooth. No bitterness what so ever!
Paired this with a cheese burger for lunch, but this brew cries out for steak. — 13 days ago
An easy, vibrant white wine that while being refreshing and bright, maintains that Georgian earthiness. This wine is delightful with notes of honey, citrus, and juicy white fruits. This is the warm weather wine. Like sunshine in a bottle! — 5 days ago
