This Plavac Mali shows a fairly intense nose with typical dark fruit (blackberry, blueberry, dark plum), red rose florality, leather, cinnamon, cedar and a hint of brett. The small thick skinned berries of the Plava Mali grape typically produce tannic wine, and this version fits the bill with still agressive but ripe tannin that needs either air, time or protein to tame. Medium acidity and very good length. Rustic and built for the long haul as the fruit concentration, alcohol and tannin provide the stuffing for another 3-5 years of improvement in bottle. June 2017.
