Delightful expression of fruit as red and dark berries mixed with rich spices and chocolate ie a typical Georgias, showing its usual depth of colour and vibrant aromas. Fine supple tannins, counterbalanced by great natural acidity. Very voluptuous and viscous. Drink from now or cellar for many years, maybe twenty, probably peaking around fifteen. 15.0% alc/vol
