Wine Enthusiast 91. A full-bodied, robust quality Plavac Mali, this remarkable wine is an unusual collaboration of the 7 wineries of the Komarna appellation, and blends Plavac Mali made in the same style by different wineries. This wine is produced exclusively for Croatian Premium Wine Imports, and is available only in the US.
The first sniff of this wine tells us there is something interesting inside, with aromas of blackberry, plum, pepper and dark chocolate.
With the first sip come very silky tannins with a little touch of vanilla. An elegant wine with complex body. This wine is drinkable after 4-5 minutes.
After 10 minutes comes the typical jammy raisin flavor of Plavac Mali. Aging in oak barrels for 24 months contributes nice flavors of sweet tobacco with vanilla.
Pairs well with robust cheese, venison and steaks.
