|Diana Becevello WSET 2, WSET 3 in p rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
This 100% organic Babic red wine is ruby in color with a scent of Maraska sour cherry and aromatic herbs. The taste is fruity with a vibrant and fresh medium body. The spontaneous malolactic fermentation creates a rounder, fuller mouthfeel with soft tannins. I paired this with truffle mac n' cheese.
This wine is a fantastic value for the price. Don't let the price tag fool you. I would recommend decanting this wine at least for one hour before drinking.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
An organic red wine from Croatia’s Dalmatian coast, made from the Babic varietal. Fragrant and fruit-forward, it shows Maraska sour cherry and herbal notes on the nose. The lively medium-bodied palate repeats these notes and shows bright acidity. A great match for a pork stir-fry or spicy charcuterie and olives. Fun fact: Historically, Dalmatian dogs, originally an ancient breed from Croatia, were used to guard the horse-drawn firefighters’ carriages. They are considered to be intelligent and easy to train.

The Dalmatian Dog’s 2016 vintage was crafted in an organic vineyard from Babic, a blue-skinned varietal indigenous to Croatia’s Dalmatian coast. Subtle aromas of wild berries and currants framed with herbal touches introduced a full-bodied palate marked with red fruit flavours, soft tannins and a fruit centred finish. This creation is unoaked, letting the fruit and herbal notes to express themselves fully. Enjoy.
