"Tasted as a barrel sample and coming from higher-elevation vineyards, the 2012 Barovo is made from 60% Vranac and 40% Kratosija (another local variety) and was aged 15 months in 70% new and one-year-old barrels and 30% in concrete tank. What should be another smoking value from this team, it has tons of black raspberry, cassis, chocolate, ground herbs and melted licorice to go with a full-bodied, supple, seamless and sexy style on the palate. While, again, I don’t know this variety’s evolution well, when it’s showing this good in its youth, there's no reason to delay gratification. Drink this beauty over the coming 3-5 years.

Coming from Macedonia and under the guidance of Philippe Cambie, Tikves continues to produce high quality, value priced wines that over deliver. "

4/5 stars
big and bold - If you want to try something different,well,this is it. From Macedonia,this wine is made from 2 indigenous grapes found only in this region,Kratosija and Vranac, the latter reminding me of zinfandel. Deep, dark, and rich. Full of plum,hints of cchocolate, and nice balanced tannins. Just in time for fall. Enjoy it with beef stew or maybe roast lamb.
