Arrogant Frog's Ribet Red is a wonderfully soft, French red wine cuvée made from the Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%) grape varieties.
This wine already captivates with its deep ruby red colour in the glass. The elegant and complex bouquet is reminiscent of black fruits such as black currants, blueberries, cherries and plums, complemented by spicy notes of vanilla and liquorice. On the palate, this French red wine is well balanced, with soft, well integrated tannins and a long finish with warm plum nuances.
Vinification of the Arrogant Frog Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
After harvesting the fully ripe grapes, they are first destemmed according to grape variety, crushed and the mash fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. After the mash was pressed, the two wines were married. Subsequently, 25% of this cuvée is aged for four months in oak barrels and 75% in stainless steel tanks. After maturing in barrels, the arrogant Frog Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot rounds off two months in vats before this red wine is bottled.
Foood recommendation for Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Arrogant Frog
This dry red wine from France is a real pleasure to roulades with dumplings and red cabbage. But this wine is also the perfect companion for cosy barbecue evenings with family and friends.
