Two wines of the Karas brand received the highest recognition of the wine world – the evaluation of Robert Parker. The publication of the most authoritative wine critic Wine Advocate marked the basic red wine Karas 2015 and Karas Reserve 2013.
Armenian wines for the first time in history received high praise from the world wine critic Robert Parker. In the publication Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate published points of two wines of the brand Karas.
The base red harvest blend of 2015 (Syrah 35%, Malbec 35%, Cabernet Franс 20%, Tanna 10%) received 87 points.
In the published commentary on wine, its voluminous aroma, elegance of taste, fruity and complexity with nuances of herbs and animal shades are noted.
Karas Reserve harvest of 2013 was even more highly appreciated. Blend of the best varieties of this harvest (Syrah 40%, Montepulciano 30%, Tanna 10%, Malbec 10%, Petit Verdot 10%), aged 14 months in French and Armenian oak and were awarded 90 points.
The wine is marked as complex. Complex with dominant forest berries and shades of herbs. The taste has a good structure and a balanced acidity, a juicy aftertaste. According to Wine Advocate, due to competent work with oak, wine has the potential for further aging and will improve over time.
The Robert Parker 100-point system for wine evaluation was first presented in September 1978 and has since been the benchmark for wine evaluation. Note that the 87-90 score is the base for recommendations for purchase, when evaluating young Bordeaux wines.
