Soviet Bus Stops and Ramsay Cabernet
From The MetroWines Book Review Department
Photographer Christopher Herwig first noticed the unusual architecture
of Soviet-era bus stops in 2002. Over the next 12 years, he covered more than 18,000 miles through 14 countries in the former Soviet Union hunting down these bus stops! The local bus stop proved to be fertile ground for local artistic experimentation in the Soviet period, and was built seemingly without design restrictions or budgetary concerns. The result is an astonishing variety of styles
and types across the region, from the strictest Brutalism to exuberant whimsy.

The varietals in country include Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Bing cherries and red currant in the nose with numerous subtle undertones.
These are carried forward to the palate with bright, mouth-filling fruit with just the perfect hint of tannin. Winemaker Kent Rasmussen truly believes that
the North Coast has the perfect terroir for growing Cabernet Sauvignon.
