Our Notes: Bordeaux varieties have existed in Brda for over 200 years and are planted to the steepest and most exposed portions of the vineyards Grbunovo, Velika brajda, Jez, Neblo-vrh. With an average vine age of 20 years, grapes are hand harvested in late September, quickly transported to the winery, de-stemmed, and macerated in concrete vats for 2-3 weeks depending on each fermentation. Three years of barrel aging with careful attention paid to topping each barrel has resulted in a wine built to age with enough fruit and spice to make the 2006 the current vintage to drink now.

91 Points Wine & Spirits MagazineWinemaker Jean-Michel Morel bases this blend on merlot (60 percent) along with cabernets sauvignon and franc and a small amount of petit verdot. But it is not merlot-easy. The musky scent and potent, gravelly tannins made it austere, a powerful, chewy red that needs bottle age. Already sophisticated, with a bit of a swagger in its personality, this is built to cellar.
