The Ribet Red by Arrogant Frog is a wonderfully soft French red wine cuvée from the Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%) grape varieties.
This wine already impresses with its deep ruby red colour in the glass. The elegant and complex bouquet is reminiscent of black fruits such as blackcurrants, blueberries, cherries and plums, complemented by spicy notes of vanilla and licorice. On the palate, this French red wine presents itself beautifully balanced, with soft, well-integrated tannins and a long reverberation that brings warm plum nuances.
Vinification of Arrogant Frog Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
After harvesting the fully ripe grapes, they are first destemmed separately according to grape varieties, mashed and the mash fermented in stainless steel tanks in a temperature-controlled manner. After the mash was squeezed, the two wines were married. 25% of this cuvée is then aged for four months in oak barrels and 75% in stainless steel tanks. After maturing in the barrel, the arrogant Frog Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot rounds off two more months in bottles before this red wine is bottled.
Food recommendation for the Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Arrogant Frog
This dry red wine from France is a real treat for roulades with dumplings and blueberry. But also for cozy barbecues with the family and friends, this wine is the perfect companion.
