Staff Pick Notes

Ok, ok...Just hear me out. Bosnia-Herzegovina (and the wider Balkan region, for that matter) are criminally overlooked when it comes to the world of wine, and I'm here to play a (VERY) small role in trying to rectify that problem. Plavac Mali isn't as foreign as you might think. The result of the crossing of native Balkan grape Dobricic and Zinfindel (native to Croatia!), the wine is full bodied with plenty of ripe dark fruit flavors and earthy accents of cigars and thick country dialect. But unlike some of its counterparts across the Atlantic (looking at you California), the alcohol is moderate and the acidity, in spite of its extended oak aging, is sufficient to still lend refreshment. So throw off your stereotypes like a bad memory from the 90s and give Balkan wine a chance.
