Mukuzani Vinobiza 2018
Georgian Red Wine

As the crowd begins to part, you can just begin to make out the label of a wine bottle that’s been staring at you from across the bar. Mukuzani, it reads. You’ve only heard whisperings of it before, so now you’re intrigued. You sit up a little straighter and order a glass. The dark ruby color is all the invitation you need. Now swirl. You inhale the freshly expressed aromas of black plum, berries and a hint of vanilla. Now take a long, slow sip. Ah, that’s the stuff. Aged in oak barrels, this wine is very approachable, with a long finish. This is the glass you have been waiting for all week. The glass you have earned. Let go of the outside world and really enjoy it. We’re sure someone will feed the kids and walk the dog. This is you time.
