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.

Nice numerated bottle made of thick glass. Bold, spicy, dark fruits, long tannic aftertaste.
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.
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.
