An Eric Solomon selection. This is a blend of two indigenous Macedonian grape varieties, Kratoshiya (pronounced krat-oss-SHEE-yah) which shares the same genetic origins as Primitivo and Vranec (pronounced VRANash) which means 'black stallion' and adds strength and richness. An excellent wine. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has black cherries, plums, some black raspberries. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, this is bold and delicious. Black raspberries and black cherries with some underlying char. Great verve. Long finish. This is drinking quite well on its own and will work well with grilled or bigger foods and, of course, Tavche Gravche. drink over the next five to eight years.
