Our 2012 Flagship here at Basel Cellars was proudly crafted from the best blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec to give you a true reflection of our high tier Bordeaux blend. Old world tradition and techniques were practiced; from the expressive terroir where these grapes were grown, to best selected French oak barrels where they patiently matured.
You will find notes of ripe, red berry fruits, dried herbs and cassis on the vibrant nose. With a little time in the glass, hints of dark plum, violets and cedar will surprise your senses. The mouth feel is elegant, where bright fruit and toasty oak marry beautifully. Bright acidity rounds off the mouth feel and ensures for a long lingering finish through luscious layers of intense fruit. Firm, mature tannins frame the structure of this wine to make it more complex and balanced. Our Merriment will pair well with hearty meals such us green bean stew with lamb, roasted pheasant with herb risotto and cheeses such us aged Gouda and Gorgonzola. This Cuvee can easily mature to perfection in your cellar for 5-10 years.
