Wines from Eastern Europe are on the cusp of being the next big thing. They have an ancient grape growing tradition, great terroir and awesome indigenous varietals. This wine 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. The taste reveals dry plums and matured morello cherries in good harmony with sweet tannins. It pairs well with spicy and strong dishes and grilled meat, including beef, lamb, duck and wild game.
