Winemaker's notes:
Младото вино от сортовете Мерло и Темранийо излиза на пазара на 27 ноември и ще се опита да радва родния консуматор всяка година на тази дата. Junior 2009 пленява със свежия си, наситен с плодови аромати характер. Цветът е рубинен, с пурпурни отблясъци. Във вкуса се долавят червени горски плодове, вишни, в съчетание с лека пикантност. Лек вкус, чудесно балансиран, с мек и дълъг финал.Като повечето млади вина, добре е Junior 2009 да се охлади леко преди консумация и е много добър партньор на телешко, пиле, агнешко, меки сирена.

This is an interesting young wine which utilizes a very special varietal 'Tempranillo' famous for the production of world-famous Spanish Rioja. The combination of Merlot and Tempranillo gives you a fresh young wine with interesting nose, combining the best of both sorts - berries and wild fruits from the Merlot and hints of vanilla from the Tempranillo. On the taste the wine is balanced but rather sweet.
