Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Made from the Saperavi grape, from Koncho Winery located in the Kakheti region of Georgia and produced by United Stars. A delectably dry, ruby coloured red wine with a glistening purple hue. Dark and plummy with spicy, earthy undertones. Well balanced with a clean finish, this will pair nicely with herbed grilled pork and root vegetables. A spectacular value $14.95 466458 for this old world gem! Enjoy.
Craig Haynes WSET3 FWS rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Crafted from the Saperavi grape variety, this wine displayed a stunning deep ruby in my glass and revealed notes reminiscent of candied red berries and cherries, earthy cedar and wood smoke. Showing velvety tannins, this medium bodied red from the Republic of Georgia capped off with an extended fruity finish. From a terroir perspective, this wine was created mostly from saperavi harvested in the country’s Kindzmarauli appellation. Enjoy.

Koncho Winery 2016 is a great value 100% Saperavi under $15. Produced by United Stars, look for rich cherry-berry, dark plum and a kiss of spice on the palate - a juicy red from Georgia for barbecued ribs and grilled vegetables. - Community Wine Reviews
