A 50/50 blend of indigenous Macedonian varietals Plavec and Vranec.  This wine is deeply-colored and bold with plenty of ripe blue and black fruit.  Nice structure and acidity that makes you forget about the 15%ABV. 

I don’t know the protocol for quoting yourself.  But this is what I had written when I first introduced this wine to you.  I stand by it.

Upon opening the bottle, I was immediately impressed.  The wine is densely pigmented.  Aromas of wild dark berries and sandalwood fill the glass.  On the palate, the wine is rich, but not heavy.  The palate bursts with ample fresh and crunchy fruit.  There is just enough of a dusty tannin to give the wine a nice, mid-weight structure.  The finish is complimented by a bit of mineral and again, sandalwood.  This wine is a winner!
