Product Description

Produced by Bodegas Sers, Sers GR18 Cabernet Merlot, formerly known as Sers Reserva, comes from the harsh, windswept Spanish region of Somontano.

The 2016 vintage of this Spanish red wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The grapes come from Finca La Morera, located at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level and farmed following sustainable and environmentally friendly practices.
The grapes were handpicked by and traditionally vinified. Then this Somontano red wine was aged for 18 months in American oak barrels.

After that, Sers GR18 Cabernet Merlot 2018 was delicately filtered and aged for another 18 months in the bottle.

The wine was not filtered before its bottling, so it may present some sediment.

Thus, we suggest that you decant this reserva red wine 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Sers GR18 Cabernet Merlot is medium purple with a garnet rim.


Rather tight at the beginning, as this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot opens it displays aromas of cinnamon, vanilla, pepper and clove, combined with remembrances of black fruit, toast, smoke, dry earth and withered leaves.


Smooth and meaty, with a solid structure and a refreshing acidity. Black fruit, Eastern spices, bitter chocolate, vegetables, toast, balsam and some mineral remembrances. This reserve red wine from Bodegas Sers has a long, spicy finish.

Our personal opinion

A perfect pairing with game dishes, Sers GR18 Cabernet Merlot 2018 has freshness, intensity and character.
