    Users Who Logged This Wine

    Robert Parker 90 - Made by consulting oenologist Philippe Cambie, who has been telling me for years, "Wait until you taste my wines from Macedonia," this 100% Vranec (an indigenous varietal) reveals a high quality California Zinfandel-like, briery, raspberry, earthy, peppery fruit character as well as a southern Rhone garrigue and spice box note. The wine possesses gorgeous fruit, medium to full body, supple tannins and outstanding purity as well as length. This remarkable value exhibits a deep ruby/plum color, abundant black currant fruit, and an unmistakable personality. It comes from 30 to 60-year-old Vranec vines from the oldest winery in Macedonia, first established in 1885. How long will it last? I have no idea, but there is certainly enough fruit and body for it to hold up for at least 2-4 years. But, why wait?

    I caught the aroma of strawberry mentioned on the back label, Jen and my mother smelled the black currant. Flavor is much like a Zinfandel, confirmed by our using the Zinfandel glass to serve it.
