Our Notes: Only six bottles left! The lithe, mineral R6 typically has a freshness uncommon to the reds from the more famous and warmer growing areas in Southern Dalmatia. A roughly equal blend of native red varieties Babić, Plavina, and Lasin, it’s then co-fermented, aged 12 months in American oak, and consistently dry with 13% alcohol. The 2011 is lighter in body than the 2010, but more aromatic and it greater balance with the now more used American Oak barrels. Ripe fruit aromas that hint at the Zinfandel heritage all three grapes belong, but ultimately savory and chock full smoky Mediterranean herbs. Exceptionally food-friendly pair it with anything from goat cheese to smoked meats to raw tuna. The American oak accents compliment just about anything that comes out of a wood fired oven.
