    Damianitza Winery, Rubin, Uniquato, S.W. Bulgaria, 2007: Developed in French and Bulgarian barriques for 10 months, showing super-dark garnet in color. Full-bodied with fine balance between gripping tannins and spicy oak, showing black and red berries on a background that hints nicely of roasted herbs and a freshly turned forest floor. Approachable and enjoyable now but best from mid-2011-2013, perhaps longer. Score 89.
