Rating/Awards:
3/3 stars from The Washington Post: "Wow. This modestly priced wine tastes like something twice as expensive, maybe more. It is racy and energetic, with black- and red-fruit flavors, great body and a smooth, lingering finish. Try it with burgers or steaks, stir fries or stews. Amaze your friends with a stylish selection from a country whose wine they haven’t tried before." - Dave McIntyre

"This is a more refined (and oakier) wine than the regular 2015 red reviewed. Showing better mid-palate finesse and precision, it adds a medley of blue fruit flavors and a hint of herbs. It finishes tight, with some acidity, leading to a juicy finish. It pulls in the oak rather well with time."

"Aromas of raspberry and rose petal offer a glimpse of flavors to come, including cherry, raspberry, violet, smoke and sage. A soft entry becomes incrementally fuller on the palate as grippy tannins make their presence known and then slowly recede into a finish noted for lasting brightness and cranberry flavor."

"This blend of three indigenous grapes from Armenia is deep garnet in color, with aromas of raspberry, blueberry and violet. It is pleasantly tart on the palate, offering flavors of cherry, cranberry, chocolate and pencil lead. Very smooth in the mouth, it has a finish that leaves a lasting hint of smokiness."

(70% Kangun, 30% Rkatsiteli)
The wine’s translucency encompasses elegant textures, defined flavors, and a well-balanced structure. The grape’s maturation on the estate’s sunblessed hills helps the wine capture the essence of the variety, distinct aromas of banana and other tropical fruits. The palate has crisp minerality.
