Winemakers Tasting Notes:
Dokaz Cabernet Sauvignon has a beautiful deep purple color. Bright and juicy berry fruits coat the palate and mingle with brambly spice, hints of black olive and anise. Full body with velvety, fine, grape and oak tannins add to the structure and flow onto the long, fruitful and spicy finish.
Extractive wine with feel of fruitiness at the same time tipical for Cabernet from Sumadia. Dokaz has a great potencial for development and long aging in the bottle.
The fruit for Dokaz 2015 was hand-harvested during the cool early morning hours to ensure that the concentrated fruit flavors were captured at the peak of ripeness. Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were de-stemmed, moved into stainless steel tanks and slowly warmed to fermentation temperatures. Following the completion of primary and malolactic fermentation, the wine was drained and gently pressed onto a barrique barrels made from Serbian oak (225 liters) in which is aged for 24 months. Thereafter the wine was blended in large oak barrels for a period of another six months.
Food Pairing Suggestions:
Grilled meats, red sauces, bleu and cheddar cheeses, blackberry cobbler, filet mignon.
