It's like if a Zinfandel hooked up with Piedmontese reds, and the world was better off for it.

Always a fun wine! Zin meets Pinot! Juicy raspberries, mountain herbs, supple texture! take a trip to the Istrian Sea! @Rx Wine Lab

A decent plavac mali, although grown in vineyards of Split, Omiš and Makarska, not Hvar as one would maybe expect. I smell some oak, dried herbs mixed with red berries. Taste tends to be more sour than bitter, although not in an unbalanced way. So, the wine is just fine if your expectations are realistic, otherwise double the money and buy something else from Zlatan.

Tart to fresh red fruit on the nose - Roger and I think cherry and red currant. Savory dried herbs. Freshness found in some acid. Minerality. Really a fun wine!

One of those fun surprises when you don't expect much and then get an over-delivery :) had the light rosiness and black tarry astringent character of a quite good piemontese nebbiolo...you know who I mean
