United Stars Kindzmarauli 2018 ($18.95)

David Lawrason: This is a semi-sweet red made from the saperavi grape, the lead varietal in Georgia. Expect pretty, floral (violet) plummy/blackberry jam nose with hints of licorice and vanilla. Chill and enjoy late evening with cheese or chocolate, as you would port but with much less alcohol and sweetness. Chill a bit.


Tifliski Vini Pogreb Semisweet Kindzmarauli 2018 ($19.95)

David Lawrason – As advertised this is a semi-sweet yet well balanced wine made from the saperavi grape, grown in the Kindzmarauli sub-region of the Kakheti Valley. It is quite rustic and complex aromatically with dried fruit, caraway and some cheese rind character. The acid-sugar balance is fine, with some tannin adding to a drier impression than I expected. The length is very good. Very much worth an exploration.


Tbilvino Alazani Valley Red 2019  ($15.95)
