KAYRA IMPERIAL 2009 CABERNET SAUVIGNON MERLOT “LOST IN THOUGHT”

“Lost in Thought”

The fertile soils of Anatolia, reflecting each year’s individual environmental and climatological conditions, are more generous to some grapes than to others. While their roots imbue each grape with a rich and unique flavor, the grapes are caressed, ripened and made redolent by the sun, the wind and the rain. Kayra Imperial is a special series that transforms the very finest of each year’s harvest into wines designed for the true wine-lover. And who knows next year which grape will provide the richest and most enticing harvest, offering wine-lovers a unique enological experience…

Kayra Imperial Cabernet Sauvignon – Merlot 2009 is a limited edition vintage, only 17 barrels made from the finest, carefully selected Cabernet Sauvignon from Thrace and Merlot from Urla.

This Wine turns out that most complex of matters can be the most simple. Just enjoy the moment with your family or friends new and old and what you share.
