Community Tasting Notes (9) Avg Score: 88.8 points

  • Less than beautiful color and unremarkable nose with a little new car smell gives way to much better than expected palate of stone fruit, cherry juice, and the type of caramel notes that sometimes come out of a port or bourbon barrel. Versatile with food, but could happily drink it without. Makes a nice house red at this price point.

  • Oog: Diep robijnrood.
    Neus: Aangenaam mooie pittige geur. Veel rood fruit maar ook hout, tabak en chocolade.
    Smaak: Zeer aangename verrassing, rood fruit, eikenhout, tabak, chocolade, vanille en tannines.

    Gedronken als begeleider van een redelijk pittige stoofschotel van rundvlees waar het heel goed bij past.

    Ik was verrast van de mooie kwaliteit van deze Bulgaarse wijn. Het is goed merkbaar dat ze twaalf maanden op eikenhout heeft gelegen. Het effect ervan ligt tussen een stevige Bordeaux en een goede Spaanse Reserva in.
    Toch scoor ik hier niet meer dan 87/100 vanwege de (te) vele bitterstoffen. Ik vermoed dat deze wijn nog een jaar of twee moet liggen om verder te rijpen. Ik verwacht dat dan mijn score naar de 90/91 zal gaan.

  • On pop and pour or with time in the glass, this had a nice array of blackberry and cherry with firm dusty tannins on the back end. While somewhat one dimensional, it is a nice QPR. I believe this has plenty of time left.

  • A nice surprise. I have only had a few Bulgarian wines but they have all been pretty solid. This was a very nice bottle. Bordeaux like characteristics on the nose (pretty much a BDX blend with added Syrah), good amount of dark fruit, heavy oak, a tad bit overpowering, but overall nicely done. Impressive wine with potential to age longer. But pretty good right now.

  • Something out of the ordinary, a Merlot blend from Bulgaria. 10€/13USD in Germany. I came across this one while browsing 90p.+ wines in my favourite online wineshop.

    66% Merlot, 12% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot. 12 months in oak barrels, 14.5% vol. (taken from the website).

    The eye sees an ruby intense red with some purple and brown refelctions, slow legs. The nose explodes with cherry, bramble, vanilla , mineral and menthol aromas, a touch of leather and wood, followed by floral and herbal aromas, slightly alcoholic. A very Bordeaux-ish nose, great! (12.5/15p.) The mouth is starting with a round attack of fruit, acidity and spice, followed by well integrated tannins. Elegant with mineral notes. Also very much Merlot-Bordeaux in taste, slightly alcoholic. (11.5/15p.) The strong body shows a nice balance between fruit, medium tannins and medium(+) acidity, with acidity being dominant, some alcoholic heat. (7.5/10p.) The finish is dry, fruity and lasting, with remarkable tannins and acidity. (7.5/10p.) A very good or even excellent wine. 12.5+11.5+7.5+7.5(+50) = 89/100p.

    Overall this one suprised me in a very positive way. A very Bordeaux-ish wine, could be mistaken if you did not know. A great example of high quality Bulgarian wines. Good for some more 5-7 years. I will buy this one again.
