A true “Georgia’s” of the past, from a perfect vintage. Deep crimson red, with intense aromas of ripe berry fruits and peppery spices, that follow through on to the palate with richness and length, balanced with high natural acidity and noble tannins. Excellent cellaring potential but highly drinkable now with red meats.
