2015 Cabernet/Merlot/Rubin, Yamantiev, Bulgaria, Ready ,Drink now , 14% abv

Sumptuous blend from the heart of Thracia showing black cherries and juicy black plums on the palate. Abundant sun and gentle breeze from the white sea keep this generic wine immensely drinkable at a bargain price. Rubin is an iigenous grape variety arrived at by crossing Nebbiolo and Syrah in 1946. Great with pizza, pasta, meatballs, sausages etc.
