Tasting notes: Shiny and dense ruby red color. Intensive spicy-fruity aroma, dominated by notes of black pepper and cloves and juicy fruits typical of the variety: black cherries, blackberries, gooseberries and ripe plums. An elegant oak tone and a light earthy shade complete the fragrant bouquet. 42/25 Merlot is soft and balanced in the mouth, with velvety tannins. The body is medium, the spicy-fruity palate corresponds to the bouquet. The finish is spicy, with hints of oak and cherry jam.
Serving suggestions: This spicy, yet fresh Merlot matches soft to medium-hard cheeses and tender red and white meats, as well as exotic cuisine, meat stews and generously seasoned vegetable dishes. Pair with mild to medium (but not very strongly flavoured) hard cheeses. Spaghetti and meatballs, lasagne and macaroni cheese; spicy rice dishes and bean dishes with smoked ham or chorizo; roast turkey; chinese style crispy duck pancakes; braised short ribs; chicken, pork or rabbit casseroles with a fruity element. Serve at 16-18°C, in Cabernet Sauvignon glass (tall stem, larger bowl, wide rim) or regular Red wine glass.
Storage: Cool and dark place, at temperature 12-15°С.
