Matruŝko Postup 2008

Member Review by zufrieden:

This small producer - a bottle from whom was purchased at the Split (open-air) market for about 11 dollars US - was certified so-to-speak - by a good and well-informed Slovenian friend. He looked sternly at the wine label saying simply and assertively: "I know this guy". Good enough for me and good enough for you: this wine from the beautiful Pelješac Peninsula on the Croatian Dalmatian Coast is similar to a high-end Zinfandel from Sonoma and close enough to a 90 point wine that I blinked. The wine has an intriguing candy apple scent and is California-inspired with its additional sweet licorice and fine cigar on the nose. Tannins are soft with ice cream viscosity and a medium sweet cherry finish. Excellent wine. 89 - 90 points.
