This wine is a very good blend between Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grapes grown in our vineyards in Dealu Mare. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes (80%) were vinified separately from Shiraz (20%). We picked them later, to achieve more consistent wines. The grapes were selected and sorted to obtain the required quality in the final wine. 40% of both wines were aged in American and Romanian oak barrels for 12 months. It has good bottle-aging potential.
Dark ruby color, with complex notes of blackberry and spices on the nose, and with fine oaky accents. This wine has a very nice taste of black forest fruits, with well-integrated tannins and a long, silky finish.
Enjoy this wine with a variety of dishes based on beef, pork, wild boar or venison, served with slightly acidic sauces.
This wine is best served at a temperature of 18-20°C.
