The Trnjak grape is planted in the Citluk vineyard to pollinate the Blatina grapes.  It is also vinified on its own make this 100% Trnjak grape wine.  I actually preferred the Trnjak wine.  Ruby in color, with some slight browning but still bright.  The nose is dusty with black cherries, and some black current.  A touch of volatile acidity.  On the palate, the black cherries come thru along with a touch of candied cherries and slight earthiness.  Good acidity but under control.  Nice finish.  This drinks well now and should have a few more years, but that's just a guess.  It will work well with fatty meats and hard cheeses.
