PENUMBRA

555 MDL

Feteasca Neagra, Merlot, and Syrah merged into a unique blend and created Penumbra. After resting for 18 months in the oak barrel, this wine acquired the most aristocratic shades of ruby. The distinct flavors display a bold combination of blackberries, cherries, blueberries, and slightly spicy notes of pepper, anise, and cardamom. The taste is velvety and balanced on the palette.
