Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

My first taste of an Armenian red, but this one seemed quite international in style. With an Argentinian winemaker and a famous French global wine consultant, this is unsurprising. It was full flavoured with black fruit, coffee and chocolate coated espresso beans, ending with salted licorice. A blend of Syrah, Malbec, Cab Franc and Tannat. Try with duck ragu and tagliatelle. @wrightwineblog
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

With a label claiming to have crafted wine for 6,200 years! this Armenian wine welcomes a taste of its reputation. A dark ruby blend of mainly Malbec and Syrah, this full-bodied wine has dark fruit and smoke aromas. A long, almost sweet, earthy finish.
The tannins in this wine would showcase any food pairing that go well with Cabernet Sauvignon pairings.
From the Armavir Region in Armenia, Karas 2017 is a full-bodied red blend of 40% Malbec, 40% Syrah, 10% Petit Verdot and 10% Tannat. This is a deep, dark red with lots of ripe dark fruit, earthy and smoky on the palate. Pair with games dishes. Karas was co-produced by winemaker Gabriel Rogel with assistance from Michel Rolland. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
