    Curious about the source of this wine's name, I read that, according to folklore, the finest wines are so lovely they will make a pheasant cry! Quevri, or clay amphorae lined with beeswax have been the traditional vessels for aging wine in Georgia since the Bronze Age. Saperavi, which translates as 'dye', is an ancient indigenous variety, a particularly black grape imbued with pink juice given plenty of skin contact. This imparts very distinctive, ample flavors of ripe blueberry, sandalwood, violets and spice, with savory tannins and and a subtle mint-mineral note.Very cool wine.
