Baraka, Prisbus Riserva Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2013 – Dalmatia
A fairly new producer on the scene. Filip Baraka and his father have small holdings of vineyards near Šibenik. This wine was aged for 14-16 months in new French Oak. Full of charred wood, black cherry, cassis, capsicum, and graphite flavors. The wood comes on strong and may be too heavy for some but it is well integrated. Medium bodied Bordeaux blend that is plush in the mouth and has a long finish guided by fine tannins. Really pleasant with low alcohol at 12% ABV.
Prisbus Riserva 2013 was tasted August 2017. Check out our wine page for more info about Prisbus Riserva
