Semi-sweet red wine. Produced from Alexandrouly and Madjuretuly grapes, grown in Abrolauri region, Eastern part of Republic of Georgia. Rich harmonic taste with complex and tender flavor.
|Region:||Russia » Myskhako Cape » Krasnodar|
Nice numerated bottle made of thick glass. Bold, spicy, dark fruits, long tannic aftertaste.
Bold flavors of anise and vanilla. Smooth sterile clean finish with a burn real similar to standard Stoli. Very good vodka but not worth the price tag. In this price range I would go with Chopin or Russian Standard Imperia.
|Winery:||International Winery Trading House|
|Varietal:||Merlot , Cabernet Sauvignon , Saperavi|
Easy to drink difficult to describe. This one produced since 1977 year. A semi-sweet red wine produced with some amount of fresh grape juice, has nice fresh taste. Try pairing it with any kind of appetizers and fast-food, like hamburgers, burrito, Ge...
|Region:||Russia » Myskhako Cape » Krasnodar|
One of the 21500 numerated bottles, very good price. Perfectly balanced nice wine. It seems to be mild comparing to classic Georgian saperavi. As usual it has a bright taste of what we call "chernoplodka" (Arónia mitschurínii) in Russia.
