Zulal Wines Areni Reserve 2018, Armenia



A very pretty color of ruby, with a wide reddish rim and medium plus intensity.

Fruity nose with cherries, plums, black currants, spices, light earth and herbs.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and pretty legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, sweet cherries, earth, spices, light oak, light vegetables, herbs and peppercorn.

Medium finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice red from Armenia, with a soft mouthfeel and nice balance. Easy drinking and fruit forward, with a touch of earth notes. Spicy and interesting. Rich and elegant.

Good right out of the bottle and good by itself. Feels like Côtes du Rhône red.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

13% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$33.
