Description

Kabaj Cuvée Morel 2010

Kabaj Cuvée Morel is a beautiful Bordeaux blend without the hefty price tag. Medium garnet colour. The bouquet is full of black cherry, violet, black olive and tobacco notes. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate with firm tannins. Rich black cherry, plum and black currant flavours that feature coffee and tobacco accents. Subtle presence of lavender on the finish adds to this wine's complexity.


50% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. The grapes come from Kabaj's 15 hectares of local vineyards in the Brda region. 

Manual harvesting before 30 days maceration in inox, wood and concrete vessels. The wine ages for 7 years in 225L French oak barrels and an additional 6 months in the bottles.


Ageing potential: Will age for years to come.
