2016 Prince Stirbey MERLOT: 14.5% Vol
This grape variety comes from Bordeaux but is known throughout the world. On the hillsides of Dragasani, it develops its full potential of elegant scents and keen spices. It matures in oak barrels for at least a year, with carefully measured use of new wood; this results in a dense structure of tastes which never become heavy or overly concentrated. Thus, the wine retains a smooth, harmonious elegance even after many years in the bottle.
