2019 United Stars Mukuzani Dry Kakheti 

I had the pleasure of sitting next to a fellow who was born in Georgia (Eastern Europe not the US) at work, and he took the time to tell me a bit about his country and their steep history in wine. Well, I just had to go get one to try … Inky dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine packs a bunch with deep black berries, coffee and oaky notes along with some chocolate … nice and dry! On the medium length finish the wine finishes big with firm bold tannins and lively acidity. This is a bigger wine, so be careful what you serve it with. I would give it an 88 or so, we paired it with a striploin and it went well! From the LCBO web site, check stock:
