Rodoslov 2006: Color dark ruby red. Very complex smell dark cherry, blackberry, violets, and in background earth, some herbaceous and tobacco. Strong extractive, body. In the mouth full but silky ,nice balance , soft tannins.and elegant mixture of fruit dark chocolate, spices and smoke and oak wood. Through it all permeate the characteristic herbaceous-earthy aroma of the Prokupac g.v.. Long harmonious finish: berries with nice oak and leather . Strong , delicious slow drinking wine.
What else ? It’s amazing what a small amount (10%) of Prokupac grape in this blend , gives to this wine a clear domestic seal. Handsome French body and spirit of Serbia. Because of the peculiarities of it, we think that it deserves to be try, although because this is Last of its kind. ( new generation of Rodoslov is classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc and Merlot)
Rodoslov 2009 : . Colour dark red with a purple shade. Fruity and very pleasant smell : Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, and violets in background. Medium body. Velvety structure. In the mouth , pleasant fruit acid , excellent balance. nice tannins. . Long gentle finish full of fruit.
What else ? Total change of style,gentle Bordeaux blend, quite a surprise for domestic wine lovers. The main problem of this wine is that it could be compared with his older brother (Reserves 2006) and any comparison doesn’t correct. But this new “fashionable Bordeaux blend ” has its fans too, especially among the ladies.
Rodoslov 2012 : This is a very promising wine, 2012 was a great year for grapes and winegrowers. Strong and tasty Bordeaux blend, full body, berries and very good oak at background . In some way it is third, totaly different version of Rodoslavo wine..Only objection is price, 40 eur. per bottle is a little bit expensive, although this is a good wine.

Lost and Love (Shi gu) 2015
Strong movie, with sad and serious story., narrated in nice way . And with optimistic finish. This is the first similarity with this wine. The second is the role of Andy Lou,. He, like Propkupac in the this wine , is dominates in this movie and gives it personality.. Young , handsome Boran Jing appears quite pale beside him, although substantial efforts.
So : power , drama. and personality. ( real good script . Peng San Yuan , unknown to us until now, make good job)
