I opened the bottle for my best friend.
It had a deep colour at first sight. Smells of wood. Softer than 2016.
I enjoyed it with a beef dish.

It wasn't well paired with food, but the wine was good and tasty. It was served at a wedding.
A Merlot with a nice colour. Smells like cedar wood or pine tree. Very light, pleasent.

I took it at one of the Uvinum's offers .
The border colour was almost brown. Pleasant smell of tea. It seemed a bit salty, it reminded me the sea.
