This is my second wine from Telavi Wine Cellars and I would say that this one is phenomenal. It's red, it's sweet, it has mild acidity and it's level of tannins offset and complement the sweetness like Yin and Yang. The color is a very rich purple, and the flavor is of cherries and strawberries, but in a nice dark aspect.

While this wine is listed as a apertif, I could see it as great with certain desserts, or even nice next to a glass of coffee of after dinner drink like Ouzo or Grappa.

This wine is both great for red lovers that don't just like dryness and white lovers that like a little sweetness.

I can't wait to try the other wine that I have by them.
