100% Areni from estate vineyards in Vayots Dzor. Fermented in steel, aged in French oak for 17 months. 260 cases produced.

Tasting Notes: Bright red to the rim. Nose needs some time, cherry and cranberry notes emerge. Pomegranate fruit on the palate with wellintegrated vanilla oak. Tannins emerge on the finish – this wine gives the impression that additional complexity will develop with more time in the bottle.
