Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2007 Sub Rosa is a blend of 60% Prokupac (as the winery helpfully indicates, pronounced Pro-Cou-Patz) and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for 24 months in 3,000-liter and 5,000-liter Serbian oak casks, it was then transferred for 12 months to French barriques of 225-liters. Approximately 70% of the oak was new, the rest old. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Intended to be made only in the best years (the 2009 was just bottled in March, 2014, I’m told), this is the debut vintage of this brand. The Prokupac comes from the winery’s oldest vines, approximately 115 years old (planted bush-style in 1910 and also said to be the oldest vines in the region). By far the most impressive of this group, it is tightly wound, powerful and intense, with fine fruit and tension on the finish. A touch rustic on opening, it comes around well. The only real issue is the oak treatment that influences the wine a bit too much, but ultimately this is focused and impressive, likely to age gracefully and improve more for the next several years. Notwithstanding that initial hit of oak, this came around well and it grew on me steadily. It is easily the most impressive wine in the group. If it can pull in some oak and develop some complexity, it may yet be entitled to an uptick. There were 16,000 bottles produced, plus 500 magnums. Drink now-2023. (Aug 2014)
