On open nose is that deep dark blackberry fruit. Graphite. Wow.
Palate is insane. Huge vibrancy. Blackberry. Mineral. Dense. Incredible. Long. So well made. Some licorice and spice. Some earth
More cornas than fluffy montepulciano on open.
As this breathes nose is more menthol. Palate is deep dense plum. Great structure. Juicy. — a year ago

I give this a rather high ratings for my standards, it really came through in terms of what I was hoping g to get from it. A quite minerally, stony bony dry finish, yet a nice bit of funkiness and a raw feeling yet well made. Quite light, had it with seafood, paired really well IMO. — a year ago
My first Bulgarian wine. It’s a wonderful syrah, typical in every aspect, just like it should be. — 3 years ago
Another great surprise from Bulgaria! An excellent pinot noir, rich, thick, less elegant and more powerful. I like it! — 3 years ago
My second Bulgarian wine. And what a wine! Extremely rich on nose and palate, long aftertaste, frit forward, well balanced. A very pleasent surprise. And fairly priced as well. — 3 years ago
Actually this is a very "cool" wine. Has a very clean and refreshing nose with a deep delightful finish. Drinking it is light and dry at first with a sudden burst of delicate flavors taking hold. I am alone at the Glasbern Inn having dinner after a long day on the road. This wine will go great with my duck breast main dish. — 4 years ago
Never met a Bulgarian red I really liked until this one. Maybe because it was a 2008, the tannins had mellowed into a smooth rich finish, definitely a bargain at Kaldi. — 7 years ago
