Blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon This modern, powerfully built, richly textured red could as easily be from the Napa Valley or Coonawarra as from Bulgaria. A truly international wine in every sense this takes full advantage of high quality grapes and has the skills of Michel Roland as a consultant. Don’t be put off by the unusual location – this is world class. Deep, magnificent dark garnet color.
Attractive, complex, and very intense nose with catching aromas of sweet vanilla, mint, dried tomato, pepper, and ripe wild strawberry.
Mild, velvet palate with a pleasant fruity freshness which reminds of cherry with cinnamon, pepper and sweet vanilla-strawberry notes in the long aftertaste. Very dense, spectacular wine with exceptional texture and long potential for aging
