2015 Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot Reserve, Dry, Drink now, Thracian Valley, Bulgaria, 14% abv.

A gold medal from the International Wine Challenge in Vienna for vintage 2015 after the stunning 2010 vintage. This is becoming a signature wine from Yamantievs of Ivaylovgrad. Grapes are double sorted and wine has matured in French oak barrels of which 50% new. Complex, multi-layered wine with black forest fruits, cedar notes and truffles on the palate. Full bodied and well structured it is great with furred game!
