Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2009 Sub Rosa is a blend of 60% Prokupac (aged for 36 months in 3,000-liter and 5,000-liter Serbian oak casks that are ten-years-old) and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon (aged for 18 months in 225-liter French oak barrels; 20% new, the rest four-years-old). This is the second vintage of this wine, sourced from more than 100-year-old vines. It is only produced in appropriate vintages. It comes in at 13% alcohol. This is an elegant Sub Rosa, with fine fruit--say, blueberry cut by ripe strawberry. It is bright and lively. It has the ability to improve in the glass over several hours. Leading with its fruit and silky texture, it is very pleasing. That said, this is a big stylistic departure from the last vintage (the 2007). I rather preferred the slight rusticity of the 2007, although I was less enchanted with its oak overlay, something this 2009 does much better. Overall, this release makes some concessions to modern reality. It is easier to drink young and more civilized, but also a bit less interesting. It’s ready to drink right now. It should hold well for the next decade or so. The winery advises that the next will be the 2011--a great vintage in the region. There were 16,600 bottles produced.  (Dec 2015)
