No Man’s Land Gold red 2006

Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot
Aging: 10 months in French and Bulgarian oak barrels
Alcohol: 13.5 % Vol
Residual sugar: 3.5 g/l

The wines of the No Man’s Land family share a common heritage: they were all produced from grapes grown in the narrow strip of land along the country’s southern border. For years, Bulgaria’s border with Greece and Turkey was more than a line marking the end of one country’s territory and the beginning of the next: it was a line of demarcation between two hostile worlds. The 3-mile band along the border was a no man’s land where many who dared cross the iron curtain met a tragic end. Long untouched by man, this environmental paradise is now the source of succulent richly flavored grapes resulting in wines of extraordinary character. Aged in French and Bulgarian oak barrels, this blend between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot delights with a silky texture and a long, warm finish.

    Damianitza Winery, Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot, No-Man’s Land, Gold Label, Struma Valley, 2006: The winery’s flagship wine, with 25% developed in stainless steel and 75% in French barriques for 10 months. Medium- to full-bodied, with soft tannins and gentle notes of spicy oak, opens to reveal tempting blackberry, currant and herbal notes, those yielding to hints of licorice and cigar tobacco. Lingers nicely. Drink now-2012. Score 89.
