2006 Merriment - 750ml

Our best blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc were carefully selected to produce our astonishing flagship wine. The best techniques were used during fermentation, followed by 18 months of barrel aging in the best French oak.

This classic Bordeaux blend shows notes of cherry, black berry, clove and cedar on the nose. With a little time in your glass you will get rewarded with hints of plum, black currant, tobacco leaf and dried herbs.

Ripe berry fruits integrate well with soft toasty oak and layered tannins on the lingering mouth feel. Bright acidity brings balance to the palate and makes this wine still lively and an excellent food wine! Grilled rib eye, mushroom risotto and green bean stew will pair well with our Merriment!

2012 Merriment - 750ml

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.
