Natalie's Score: 85/100

A smooth, supple, medium-bodied Georgian red wine that is also medium-sweet. So it's neither dry nor dessert sweet, but the sweetness is detectable. Fortunately, it's not cloying and tastes more like sweetly ripe raspberries.

Saperavi Kindzmarauli food pairings: red meat dishes, saltier cheeses, desserts.

Reviews and Ratings

The 2012 Kindzmarauli Medium Sweet is made from the native Saperavi grape and presents aromas of cherry, plum, Christmas cake, spice, and bramble. Lots of sweet red fruit and complexity on the well-balanced palate. A wine with the structure for red meat dishes, but one that's capable of working well with saltier cheeses.
