Very good, the other reviewers are right about letting it air/decant, and can sit for more longer in the cellar.

Very enjoyable, great nose, it changes sip to sip, sometimes a little flat but then hits that magical umami spot on the back of the tongue you can't get with a young wine. The earthiness is predominant but the fruit is still there.

Wow! Very enjoyable, if you were pitching this like a movie you'd say Pinot Noir meets Gamay and a citrus-ie Cabernet shows up at the end... Tasting this, sitting here thinking about Armenia and the differences in terroir and the unusual grape involved, being surprised at how much more interesting it is than more expensive wines, and enjoying it with of all things corned beef...what else do you want from wine?

Very good, lots of sediment - maybe better to drink earlier instead of storing much longer?

My kind of white - nice citrus tartness, can drink on its own before dinner but also great with food, unique origin

Needs air, it's good but the inky and earthy elements dominate now, I think this will be much better in a year or more...

Very good with food, don't expect complexity or earthiness, but above average and I'm pleased to have more bottles

Different and interesting, a little apple cider flavor but finish is mostly sour, needs to be paired with the right food
