If you are new to Romanian wine, you are in for a treat. The fifth largest wine producing country in Europe (with production volume similar to Chile), Romania has been making wine for hundreds of years and offers unique varietals at an amazing value. Opulent aromas of dried cherry, violets and vanilla with smoky nuances. Powerful stuff, with just a little mint peeking through to add to the complexity. You really get the combination of toasty, barbeque- fire oak with the great Syrah flavors. What surprises most is an astonishing mouth-filling sensation from the soft chamois leather tannins. Recommended with Barbecues, red Tuna, veal Carpaccio, desserts with red fruits, almonds, walnuts.
