SKU: AreniYacoubianHobbsBTL
Internationally renowned winemaker Paul Hobbs, and partners Yacoubian family journey to the birthplace of wine to craft modern, world class wines from the indigenous varieties found in the high altitude, mineral-rich soils of Vayots-Dzor, Armenia. Their newly planted vineyards grow a stone's throw away from the Areni-1 Cave, the oldest known winery, dating from over 6,000 years ago. 

100% Areni - an ancient variety indigenous to Armenia, Areni has adapted perfectly to the high altitude, mountainous region of Vayots Dzor, where the vines thrive on the rocky, mineral-rich, volcanic soils. This late-ripening grape makes fresh, elegant, structured wines with bright red fruit flavors, and a characteristic black pepper spice.

The 2017 Areni captivates with aromas of dark fruits, muddled strawberry and freshly cracked black pepper. The palate gives way to a bright, fresh fruit expression, revealing a firm tannic structure and finishing with a pleasantly refreshing acidity. Fermented and aged in stainless steel.
