Kvareli Dry Saperavi

Vintage 2013 - tasted blind. From #saperavi Dark colour, lovely red fruits in smell, a touch of sweetness on the tongue. Blackberries! Good bitters and much character. Would combine it with game. #georgia — 2 years ago

Saperavi 2013

#Tannic beast of a wine! #Georgian #Saperavi by #NikaWinery. Have had wines from this #organic producer before that were much softer & more approachable. This #unfiltered offering needed to stay locked away in the #cellar for a little while yet until maybe it could have come around. Its tannic nature is not at balance with the somewhat high acidity. Interesting but very abrasive at this point. Will put a #cork in it and see what happens overnight. Hopefully it will soften and flesh out a bit, becoming something less assertive & better integrated tomorrow. #Optimistic. — 5 years ago
