Made from the Vranac grape which is popular in the Balkans.  The wine is made in a monastery that dates back to the 1500's.  It is aged in large oak barrels.  Purple in color, bright with a magenta rim.  On the nose, there are cherries, a bit of dill, slight earthiness, some volatile acidity and an interesting note that, to me, comes across as Frito's Corn Chips.  On the palate, this has tart cherry fruit.  Plenty of depth and complexity.  Turning more to black cherry at the finish.  The acidity pushes the limits but is within bounds (for my tastes).  This is a wine that begs for food; pasta with a meat sauce would be a nice choice.  This seems like it could go for another three to five years, but that is just a guess.
