New at Colesville Beer and Wine is the Bulgariana line of wines. In the store, we have Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Imperial Red Blend, and the Cabernet Sauvignon + Syrah blend.
A great value for the quality of wine, Bulgariana is a solid line of wines, with three reds and one white. Of special note is the imperial blend of two unique Bulgarian grapes with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Hailing from Bulgaria, to celebrate their entry at Colesville Beer and Wine, we are offering the entire line at a special price!
All Bulgariana wines are currently a dollar off of their original price!
A recent article on the Washington Post about great European wines to try at $15, or under, by Dave McIntyre says:
This is the second Bulgarian label I’ve recommended in recent weeks. A trend? If this line is any indication, let’s hope so. The cabernet sauvignon offers the classic flavors of blackberry and currant at an attractive price.
Come by the store and try a some today!
We are proud to present Bulgariana Sauvignon Blanc. This delightfully inviting wine is golden in color, with highlights ranging from yellow to green. It has a fresh, fruity, citrus-like and youthful nose, completely lacking in oak due to its having been aged only in stainless steel tanks. On the tongue there are hints of exotic fruits and pineapples, with a gentle acidity and a highly satisfying after-taste. This is a wine, which is astoundingly supple and well-balanced. It goes well with salads (unlike most wines) and with a wide variety of fish dishes. It also accompanies quite easily pizza and pasta dishes with tomato sauce as long as those dishes do not have an overwhelmingly meaty taste. ALC. 13.5%
Cabernet Sauvignon + Syrah
We are proud to present Bulgariana’s Cabernet Sauvignon – Syrah Blend. This award-winning wine is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Syrah. It is a deep, dark garnet color. On the nose it is rich, with the aroma of freshly squeezed juice from black currants and blackberries combined with notes of roasted coffee. On the palate the wine has firm powerful body with a very good tannin structure, well balanced by fresh fruit in the flavor. It has a long, spicy and juicy finish. This wine pairs well with duck, lamb (grilled, broiled), pasta with tomato sauce, grilled steak, venison; as well as with Brie, Camembert, Danish Bleu, and Sharp Cheddar. ALC. 14%
Imperial Red Blend (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Rubin, Mavrud )
We are proud to present “Imperial Red Blend” – a blend of two uniquely Bulgarian grapes, Rubin and Mavrud, and two grapes which are universally known, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. This complex and well-balanced wine will appeal to real connoisseurs, to people who like full-bodied and spicy wines, and to those who like fruity and fresh wines. It has a little bit of everything in complex, multi-faceted layers of tastes and aromas. With notes of black cherry, freshly made jam, roast pumpkin, elderberries, and cinnamon on the nose; the palate detects a delicate drop of musk, leather, and noble oak from the aging process. It can be served with a wide variety of meats and steak-like fish (think grilled salmon or tuna) as well as with full-flavored cheeses. ALC. 14%
