This year's deserved recognition for Castra Rubra proved just that: Bulgaria's top winery persistently contin-ues to develop a clear vision of its direction, despite all the difficulties in the economic environment. Even this alone deserves respect.
For the upcoming holidays we chose to present you one of the most valuable "children" of the Castra Rubra win-ery – the red blended Dominant. The wine is a blend of Cabernet sauvignon and Syrah, grown in the winery's own vineyards near the village of Kolarovo, Southeastern Bulgaria. It has a phenomenal potential, power and density, yet it is soft. Dominant is a wine with bright presence, it conquers the senses with its enchanting aromas and flavours; dominating with elegance and finesse, but in an unconditional manner. If we compare it with a person, Dominant will be a middle-aged man with the Brad Pitt's charm and the fit body of Bruce Willis. And like the best Hollywood productions, Dominant will carry you to a more beautiful movie reality. You do not need 10 reasons to open a bottle of wine, one is enough – a holiday! Well, of course, you will also need a corkscrew.

"…once again, the Bulgarian producer Castra Rubra mandates and American importer! These wines are both very high in quality."
