Yamantiev's Winery

2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve, Full bodied, Ready, but can keep,  Thrace, Bulgaria, 75cl, 14%abv

Classic style Cabernet from the heart of the Thracian Valley. Selected bunches of grapes were chosen and the wine aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. Robust but harmonious with blackcurrants and black cherries dominating the palate. Subtle black pepper spice on the finish. Great with hard cheeses and Sunday Roast.
