The Saperavi grapes are used predominately in the Republic of Georgia, but have spread to other regions of Eastern Europe more recently. Saperavi cultivars are also being grown in New World wine regions; notably in the Finger Lakes, New York area vineyards.
A dark ruby color with some mineral and spice and lots of black cherry on the nose. Spice, pepper, cherry and blackberry filled the mouth. The finish was long and very dry with some vanilla spice and a hint of smoke or toast. A very nice and pleasing wine. Very easy to find on-line, but may be difficult to locate in smaller cities, but worth the effort to locate. Highly Recommended
