Staff Pick Notes

If you ask for red wine in Dalmatia you'll be handed a glass of Plavac Mali (pronounced 'plah-vats mah-lee'). It's a deep ruby wine characterized by flavors of juicy red fruit that might remind you of its better known relative Zinfandel. It's robust, concentrated, and surprisingly versatile when it comes to food. Locals pair it with grilled octopus and fish as well as lamb dishes. Ivo Skaramuca makes incredible Plavac Mali wines from different regions on the Pelješac peninsula. This bottle is from Postup, an arid climate with vines planted in rocky limestone hills on the Adriatic. The palette is alive with fleshy pomegranates, raspberries, and oregano that was just picked. One sip will completely immerse you.
