Added Sep 22, 2011 at 1:08pmAnother revist fromn the cellar...nice brown, cola color with a toasted walnut and stewed fig nose. Goes down so smooth...hard to put down! Drink by itself but while it is hard to write down, I feel this would be great with a ice cream sundae and a maraschino cherry on top!

Added Sep 22, 2011 at 12:52pmRevisiting this Italian wine and getting some interesting characteristics. Get an unmistakeable whiff of roasted chili peppers on the nose with some black pepper sprinkled on top. Rich flavors of tobacco and tar accompany the mild tannins. This is a really well put together wine and isn´t too austere to drink now...plus did we mention it is fermented in an old Etruscan tomb? Pair with braised venison in a port reduction sauce.

Kozlovic Muskat 2006
Added Sep 22, 2011 at 12:34pmBeautiful straw color and overwhelmingly appealing aromas of poached pears, pineapple and canned peaches. An absolutely heavenly wine on the palate with subtle acidity but a creamy flavor that coats the mouth and is so easy to drink. You can almost hear the cherubs singing and playing music with each sip. Great to pair with spicy Asian food or as a dessert...maybe even poured over some vanilla ice cream.

Added Sep 21, 2011 at 1:01pmWrite your review here, and rate the wine from 1 to 5 glasses above.Like opening up a cedar chest or a humid cigar box, this wine is ripe with wood and forest floor aromas. There is also a back note of warm blackberries steeped in baking spices of clove and cinnamon stick. Tasting this by itself, you get immediate excitement from your gustatory receptors, especially those on either side of your tongue. The tannins are gripping at first but there is enough age that it tapers off rather quickly. This reminds me of what makes Italian wines so great, their balance and their harmony of all characterisitcs...plus they beg to be enjoyed with food. Pair this with a slow cooked roast with carrots, onions and potatoes and with a thick gravy. You could also enjoy this with a meat ravioli in a hearty tomato sauce!

Kozlovic Malvazija 2005
Added Sep 21, 2011 at 12:21pmDeep bright 18k yellow with aromas of cooked pineapple and toasted nuts. On the palate, the silky texture delivers flavors of green apple, chestnuts and butter. The finish is lingering, but kind of funky...a great 'fall' wine that would pair lovely with butternut squash soup toped with a sauteed melody of caramelized onions, crushed walnuts and green apple.

Added Sep 20, 2011 at 12:49pmYellow, golden color with a petrol and fava bean nose. The darker yellow color suggests the presence of possibe oak. It is confirmed through the soft, silky texture on the palate. But it seems as though the texture is all you get with this wine. Any fruit is muted and there is a lingering astringent feel in the back of the throat. It´s a nice refreshing wine but that finish kind of kills it for me. To combat this, try pairing with a creamy sauce like a grilled chicken fettucine alfredo and a side of steamed broccoli.

Added Sep 19, 2011 at 12:41pmDefinite presence of oak on the nose with rich caramel notes as well as notes of fresh-cut grass and a lemon squeeze. The white blend hits your palate crisp and clean and transforms into a silky lemon cream pie and then slowly melts down your throat into oblivion. A very nice all around blend but some minor rough notes on the top of the palate during the finish. Surprising for a wine that has undergone some apparent malolactic fermentation. Pair with a pasta pomodoro with a fresh crostini brushed with fresh olive oil and garlic.

Added Sep 16, 2011 at 12:31pm2004 vintage- Aromas of baked blueberries and grape bubble gum waft out of the glass like an evening fog. A touch of heat singes the nostrils but the fruit notes satisfy nonetheless. A food wine for sure, the tannins are present but have assimilated themselves to the point where they fade after a few seconds. The baked blueberry transforms into rhubarb and spiced raspberry and goes down smooth, with a touch of that heat on the finish. Drink over the next four-six years. Pair with a filet mignon with a light bearnaise sauce.

Added Sep 15, 2011 at 1:47pmUm yeah....the aroma is quite clearly cannibus sativa...that´s a first for wine! Really hard to get past that smell but there is also a touch of cut grass in there as well. Over time, fresh kiwiw and pineapple flavors come through. Really bright, fresh squeezed lemon and custard flavors refresh the palate and you almost feel surrounded by the golden rays of sunshine that hit the grapes when they were harvested. Really refreshing wine for a hot day. Pair with a fresh summer salad of greens and a pear vinagrette.

Grgic Plavac Mali 2007
Added Sep 15, 2011 at 1:25pmSpiced raspberries and jammy blackberries burst from the glass and is reminiscent of a CA Zinfandel. Supple tannins and more spice and cassis grip the tongue and then slowly release their hold over the next couple of minutes. A nice departure from the softer Portuguese wines that have been reviewed recently. Drink over the course of the next 7 years or so. Pair with bbq pork sandwiches or spicy thai chili tacos.
