2015 Plavac Mali (Rota Winery)

Rota Winery, Dalmatia, Croatia 2015

100% Plavac Mali

MULBERRY & PLUM, WARM SPICY RICHNESS, SUBLIMELY GENTLE

At long last and well overdue, we’ve got this delightful example of the grape variety whose DNA alerted the world to Zinfandel’s Croatian Origins. Not Zin itself, Plavac Mali does however bear a striking resemblance to pappy Primitivo (aka Zinfandel, aka Crljenak, aka Tribdrag). This rendition from Dalmatia’s Rota is lush, generous, and distinctly soft-spoken with moderate tannin and ripe, berryish fruit with a kiss of holiday spice. This equal parts conversation piece for the uninitiated (or less-initiated) and easy-going sipper has no trouble making new friends.

Serving Suggestion: Breaded, boneless chicken thigh w/ nutmeg & clove. Stewed cabbage & potato gnocchi (bacon optional).
