Tikve Vranec "Special Selection" 2011

Member Review by vin0vin0:

This is an interesting and different red from Macedonia. Chewy, grainy tannins go along with somewhat sour blueberry and cranberry tart. Fairly long finish and a medium of acidity. Will be interesting to see how the rest of the bottle tastes after a day or two of air.

Made by consulting oenologist Philippe Cambie, who has been telling me for years, “Wait until you taste my wines from Macedonia,” this 100% Vranec (an indigenous varietal) reveals a high quality California Zinfandel-like, briery, raspberry, earthy, peppery fruit character as well as a southern Rhone garrigue and spice box note. The wine possesses gorgeous fruit, medium to full body, supple tannins and outstanding purity as well as length. This remarkable value exhibits a deep ruby/plum color, abundant black currant fruit, and an unmistakable personality. It comes from 30 to 60-year-old Vranec vines from the oldest winery in Macedonia, first established in 1885. How long will it last? I have no idea, but there is certainly enough fruit and body for it to hold up for at least 2–4 years. But, why wait?

If you are looking for a delicious, unique wine, look no further. Produced from 100% Vranec, a varietal indigenous to Macedonia and the Balkans, this wine boasts an aroma of dark berry and liquorice. Inky red in color, the wine opens with notes of blackcurrant and raspberry, and finishes softly with white pepper spice. Medium bodied, this wine is delicate enough to enjoy on its own, pair with a red meat entrée, or savor with a rich chocolate dessert.
