Enira, Bessa Valley, Bulgaria 2015
A big, opulent, Bordeaux inspired red from a Bulgarian wine grower with French pedigree, this is a blend of 52% Merlot 26% Syrah 14% Petit Verdot and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The nose is full of vanilla and menthol aromas with plenty of berry fruits and on the palate dark fruits dominate with flavours of raisins, liquorice and sweet spice along with rustic, gamey and meaty notes. It has good, well rounded structure with supple and integrated tannins. This robust, meaty wine cries out for beef, game dishes and strong hard cheeses.
