Unicorn Winery 2018 Purcari Valley, Moldova
We are excited to enable you to try a wine from Moldova, which is one of the world’s oldest winemaking regions. Very few bottles of Moldovan wine get imported to the U.S., since most of them go to Russia and Romania. The Unicorn winery is located in the Pucari Valley, which is in southwestern Moldova. We love that this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 25% Rara Neagra includes a native variety. Its garnet hue gives way to expressive and detailed aromas of dark berry fruits intermixed with black tea leaves. One-quarter of the wine aged in French barriques for 9 months, which helps round out the palate. This lovely red is complex with a medium body and a lingering finish.
