Excellent, full bodied, dense, tasty, juicy, warm and elegant wine is the 2012 Jakob, a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franco and Merlot raised in Brodski Stupnik. The fragrance is dominated by blackberry and taste by dark chocolate. The Wine stars reviewers gave it four stars and estimated it hasn’t reached its peak, meaning it will get better with time. A bottle costs 125 kunas in Vina Jakob winery. Three stars went to the 2012 Primus by Rizman winery, based in Komarna, a new but quite good wine area near Ploče, run by the family of Igor Štimac. This fine Plavac can also wait a few years, while a bottle costs 137,75 kunas in Vivat Fina Vina. Competing were the 2013 Malvasia by Palčić winery from Novigrad in Istria (56,25 kunas in DB oprema) as well as the Veliko Belo 2009 by Slovenian winery Movia )239 kunas in Bornstein).
