Tushpa Haghtanak Reserve 2015


This is only the second vintage of Tushpa’s Haghtanak Reserve. It has extended aging in Armenian oak barrels giving the wine a dark color, smooth finish and plum, blackberry and vanilla flavors.

Tushopa makes its Reserve Red wine from its finest selection of Haghtanak grapes grown in the Estate’s Ararat Valley vineyards. The grapes were fermented in steel tanks then aged for 14 months in Armenian Oak barrels. 2015 is the second vintage of Tushpa’s Reserve Red.

A deep, dark purple wine, the 2015 Reserve coats the palate with dark plum, tart cherry and chocolate flavors. The vanilla notes of oak linger on the finish, but this not a wine dominated by new oak flavors. Rather, its round tannins, low alcohol (12.5%) and bright acid keep the wine light and well suited to pair with flavorful meat dishes.
