Saperavi Vinobiza 2018
Georgian Dry Red Wine

This tastes like the kind of wine that could turn boys into men. We like to think of this bottle as the IPA of wines. It pairs best with your favorite greasy burger or BBQ feast. Don’t forget to show off your inevitable purple Saperavi tongue after sharing a glass with your pals on game day. This wine has a strongly expressed taste. The fresh and bright acidity perfectly combines with a high minerality and lively tannins. Go ahead, impress them with your knowledge of the ripe cherry, blackberry, and black plum aromas with a medium finish…or don’t.
