Castel Mimi Merlot 2012

Its dark ruby color offers a new perspective to the senses with a complex aroma of plums and spices. The unique blueberries and chocolate taste attests the oenologist’s craftsmanship in carrying out an exclusive product. Maturation: min. 36 month in French Oak Barrels

4.4 / 5.0750 ml@Wix Kyiv Office · Vinul Moldovei Vol. 1

Look, it's not really my style, but this wine is delicious. A bit of a manly pussy-drink kind of delicious, but yeah. And believe me, there is no negativity here. Developed bouquet of prune, milk chocolate, cassis jam, blackberry, anise, Dominican cigars, and liquorice. Almost full-bodied, round and perfectly balanced. The aftertaste is persistent and flavourful. It's just the cherry on top of the cake. And I am being subjective here.

Wine #6 on Vinul Moldovei Vol. 1 event.

4.2 / 5.0750 ml@Oliva

Celebrating Moldova independence day. And that's a bottle for this occasion. Mature bouquet of prune, fig, chocolate, licorice, dried cherry, sweet tobacco, coffee, vanilla and clove. Powerful, kind of new world style, oaky, straightforward and not overly complex, but tasty mature wine.

See my previous review. It's the same, I just gave it to breathe, and it's magnificent.

4.5 / 5.0750 ml

Definitely wonderful Merlot from respected winery from the Codru region. It spent 36 months in the french oak barrels. Now at age of 8 years, it become magnificent. Black currant and blueberry jam, raw meat, cacao, prune, vanilla and allspice, toffee, condensed milk. Very well balanced, medium-high tannins and acidity, medium-full body. Very long aftertaste with flavours of blueberry jam and cacao. Something you just drink glass after glass and enjoy life. Now I feel a sudden urge to visit Moldova.
