2009 Bibich "R6" Riserva Skradin North Dalmatia Croatia
Tart sour-cherry and preserved plum flavors add freshness to this bold, spicy blend of three Croatian grape varieties. Ruddy hints of chocolate, hay and leather combine with bold tannins on the midpalate, driving the finish that's surprisingly delicate and chalky.
Produced by the Bibich Winery in Skradin, this red wine offers an eclectic blend of grapes native to Northern Dalmatia (Babich, Plavina, Lasin) that are related to Zinfandel (itself a Croatian varietal). Aged for one year in American Oak barriques. Light, smooth, with lively acids and aromas of dark fruits and berries, spices and black pepper. Serve with meats, tuna or aged cheese.
