About Anima Cabernet Sauvignon

The Anima range is made in limited quantities from the best grapes and only in exceptional years. This 100% varietal Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in new oak barrels for 15 months to add complex oak notes to the well-structured and robust wine, giving it great potential for ageing.

Why we love this wine

Mirela is Romanian and we are very excited about the emergence of great premium wines from the country and this is one of the best examples we have found. We love the rich, complex aromas of blackcurrant, black cherry, mint, mushrooms, smoke and savoury, meaty notes and especially the long finish of dark chocolate and cinnamon. We think it’s outstanding.

Why you’ll love this wine

If you like Bordeaux clarets, especially left-bank Cabernet Sauvignon-led wines with lots of structure and character, you’ll love this. Similarly, if you’ve enjoyed Napa Cab-monsters or Australian Coonawarra reds, you’ll find this familiar. It’s well-made and extraordinary good value. Decant it a couple of hours in advance and it’ll go brilliantly with steak or a Sunday roast.

Aurelia Vișinescu,


Carefully selected from exceptional vintages, the wine has been completed by maturation in oak barrels followed by bottle ageing before it was released on the market. The result is a deep colour wine, generous, full bodied, velvety texture, cassis and spices focused nose, well balanced by vanilla oak. To preserve the delicate flavours, technological intervention has been kept to minimum; therefore a light deposit on the bottom of the bottle could be a normal occurrence.
