Only 4, 4.5 and 5 NJP wines (Nenad Jelisic Points) are presented as the best vintages.
From October 2010, every time we update any information or write a new information, we shall write in parentheses when the update has last taken place e.g. (2010-10).
If for some wine stands behind the best vintages none, it means that the wine's price is too high for its quality or the wine's quality is too low.
Cabernet Franc, a red wine grape. Nutrient poor soils with good drainage properties (e.g. sand, gravel and limestone-rich soils) are an ideal habitat for the grape. Cabernet Franc, which is correctly grown and at the right place, gives wines with the aroma and taste of violets, roses, lavender, basil, coriander, sage, tobacco, blackcurrant, raspberry, red cherry and red plum. When Cabernet Franc does not get enough the sun, it gives the wines that smell and taste of unripe peppers (paprika). (2012-09)
Cabernet Sauvignon, a red wine grape. Nutrient poor soils with good drainage properties (e.g. gravel) are an ideal habitat for the grape. Cabernet Sauvignon, which is correctly grown and at the right place, gives tannin-rich, dark and ageable wines, wines with smell and taste of black currant, plum, raspberry, herbs, liquorice, and, over time, of cedar, tobacco, dried fruits and coffee. When Cabernet Sauvignon does not get enough the sun, it gives the wines that smell and taste of unripe peppers (paprika). (2012-06)
