Tasting notes

  • Appearance
    Deep ruby ​​with garnet hues.
  • Nose
    A rich wine with high complexity. Aromas of black currant, black cherry, plum, blackberry, sour cherry and blueberry, completed by nuances of chocolate, cacao, earth and coffee.
  • Palate
    A very elegant Merlot with a nice balance of fruit and acidity. Rich in tannins, but very fine and velvety on the palate. Aftertaste is very long. Complex and expressive. A very high quality wine.
  • Food pairing
    Wagyu beef teppanyaki, Genghis Khan, aged cheese.
  • Conclusions
    The quality level is outstanding. It's enjoyable to drink now, but the potential for aging is exceptionally high. The suggested drinking window ranges from the present to 2040. Truly a standout among Romanian wines.
