MBF, JS89(3)

John Szabo, MS

A ripe and sultry Mediterranean red, with fully baked fruit and rustic, old wood char and barrel spice, dried leather and scorched earth (not to say brettanomyces), highly distinctive in any case. The palate is a bit hard and rustic, but this is a wine with terrific character, honest, unadulterated, original. For spit roast lamb or North African dishes. Drink or hold mid term. Tasted March 2017. Value Rating: ***
Jane Staples rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Wild fermentation used and 24 mos in old Slavonian oak. Garnet colour with red plum, tea, oak, leather aromas. Dark fruit, oak, vanilla and spice on palate. Extra-dry with grippy tannins. Enjoy with sausages and grilled red cabbage.
Tasted April 2017

Natalie's Review

Milos Plavac Mali 2012, Peljesac Peninsula, Dalmatian Coast, Croatia: Blackened tarry fruit, and oaky notes on the nose of this robust Croatian red wine. Peppery with black fruit aromas and a smooth, seductive, full-bodied texture. There's some rust flavours on this wine that to me indicates drink this year as it's turning the corner maturity-wise. Lots of acidity. A great Croatian red wine for BBQs and potluck gatherings. This robust red wine from the Croatian Dalmatian Coast is related to the Zinfandel grape according to vine genetic studies. Big, delicious and bursting with brambleberry, mulberry, and plums. Try it with meat lovers' pizza too ... tonight! Drink: 2017-2020. 261636 13.50% XD 750 mL  $20.95 Score: 87/100.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
