Origin Bulgaria
Brand Bulgariana
Alcohol/vol 14.8%
This award-winning wine is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Syrah. It is a deep, dark garnet color. On the nose it is rich, with the aroma of freshly squeezed juice from black currants and blackberries combined with notes of roasted coffee. On the palate the wine has firm powerful body with a very good tannin structure, well balanced by fresh fruit in the flavor. It has a long, spicy and juicy finish. This wine pairs well with duck, lamb (grilled, broiled), pasta with tomato sauce, grilled steak, venison; as well as with Brie, Camembert, Danish Bleu, and Sharp Cheddar.

Ruby colored in the glass, this Bulgarian wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. It has aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg and black plum. It is balanced with flavors of plum, blackberry and baking spice, and there is just a touch of dark chocolate on the persistent finish.

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon / Syrah, an equal blend, was aged for eight months in new French oak and comes in at 14% alcohol. One of my favorites in this group, this has notable power, although like most of the others, it may not have the concentration to truly excel with extended aging-the structure is better than the fruit. Still, we're almost at age seven now, and this is in fine shape. You will have to like those beefy aromatics, though. The Syrah here is in aggressive form, giving this a strong overlay of roast beef. The Syrah largely overwhelms the Cab in flavor and aromatics. This somewhat gamey red will be best used with an appropriate food pairing-steak would be nice, or something similar. It should hold another few years without a problem. Let's take that in stages and be conservative, though.
