Grape Varietal: Areni Noir
Origin and Territory: Vayots Dzor, Armenia
Bottles Available: 3000
Vinification: Fermentation and extended maceration in stainless steel tanks to receive more concentrated aromas and taste. Barrel Over 18 months. During the first 6 months in new oak, then the rest in 1-3 year old Armenian Oak.
Nose: Aromas of cassis and blackberry bounce off the nose in this Reserve Wine. The crushed berry, cherry and red plum notes are balanced out by mesquite smoke and vanilla.
Taste: Dark and red fruit aromas framed with nuanced vanilla aroma from the oak. Little coffee and chocolate, pronounced but polished tannins and lively acidity activate a long full mouth feel finish. Stellar from beginning to end.
