Before the Greeks, before the Romans, it was the Georgians who were making wine. Archeological evidence dates back 8,000 years and references to Georgian wines can be found in the writings of Homer and Apollonius, and even the Georgian alphabet seems to have its origins in the shapes made by the tendrils of grape vines. Pheasant's Tears is the joint effort of American John Wurdeman, Georgian Gela Patalishvili, and Swedes Erik Andermo, Jakob Mörndal, and Henrik Callerstrand. They work to preserve and promote this ancient cultural legacy. All of Pheasant's Tears wines are fermented and aged in the clay vessels called qvevri. According to the winery, the effect of this time-honored winemaking process is to impart "distinctive nutty and savory aromas and flavors to the wine, adding layers of complexity. It also promotes the development of roundness and viscosity in the mouth, but keeps acidity fresh." Saperavi is a hardy red variety that's part of the teinturier family-meaning that its juice is red as well as its skin. *Natural Wine*

The color is deep dark red. It it perhaps the most intensely colored wine that I know of. It is very full bodied and juicy but also dry and balanced. Easy to drink and enjoy, it will go well with hearty foods. This wine is unique and tasty with both fruit and savory notes that work well together.
