Archil Guniava operates his small winery with his family in Kvaliti, Imereti. The 1.5 hectares are planted to several rare native varieties, including the black-skinned Otskhanuri Sapere and yellow-skinned Tsolikouri, which he raises in qvevri buried in the yard outside his family home. Archil's blend calls to mind a Syrah from the Northern Rhone with savory black pepper aromatics, heady floral notes, and hints of saddle leather. The palate is mouth-coating with flavorful bursts of under ripe blackberries, pine forest, and spiced plum. The tannins from the Otskhanuri Sapere bring firm acidity and age-worthy structure, while the Tsolikouri rounds out the finish with creamy melon, acacia honey, and delicate florals. A bottle with serious aging-potential, decant if drinking now and serve with roasted lamb shanks, or spicy eggplant with garlic and herbs. Amanda Bowman
