Back as night at the core. Band-aid, plastic top-notes. Briar patch fruits. Funky game required for a well-placed pairing.

Where to start? Excellent balance in both; Malvazija has beautiful acidity, minerality & fruit; Teran drinks like a handsome young Barolo.

Pours deep, dark ruby with undercurrents if amber out of the bottle. On the nose: bandaids, lavender, potpourri, earth, lactic acid and cigar box. Mouthfeel is a bit weak at first, but not bad. Upon first taste, it’s a little wild: Black currants, yeasty with a touch of minerality, cutting acidity, stone fruit, tobacco, chocolate. After sitting, notes of tomato leaf and fruit emerge, tobacco remains, a crisp acidity and tannic structure come to dominate the wine, such that it resembles a pleasant—if humble—Chianti or super Tuscan found on the other side of the Adriatic. Over all, a great wine for a Monday night spent critiquing a thesis.

Blackberry, earth and spice. Much oak and tannin. A little tight but really tasty.

Opens quickly, first bouquet is of meat and currants. Can see the game pairing idea. Agreed that tastes like medium bodied Malbec with a bit more juicy fruit, but well balanced with quick finish. Really nice find!Fairly simple but really delicious really drinkable
