Yamantiev's Winery

Yamantiev, Cabernet Blend, Bulgaria, Dry, Red, Ready, Drink now , 14% alc 75cl 

Deep in Southern Rhodoppe mountain, Yamantiev's flagship wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Elevated in new French oak barrels for a full year it spends another one in bottle before deemed ready for sale. Rather full and firm on the palate with layers of black forest fruits, prunes and bitter chocolate polished with black pepper spice. Round and sumptuous on the long firm finish. Please open 1 hour in advance. Great with slow roasted red meat and strong cheeses.
