Plantaže Vranac Pro Corde Montenegrin Reserve 2004
MONTENEGRIN VRANAC is a premium, red wine of intensively red ruby colour with violet nuances. The taste is full,distinctive and lightly tannic.

Nowadays, Vranac is the leading variety in Podgorica's wine growing area, achieving premium quality with very harmonious ratio of sugar and acids. Since 1991, an expert group of Milan weekly 'Il mondo' classified 'Vranac' wine among 100 top red wines of Europe. It is served at the temperature 16-18 C. It is recommended with red meat,game meat,spicy dishes and fatty cheese. In Montenegro wine Vranac is consumed with Njegushi prosciutto (ham) and dishes made of quality fish. Packing: 0.187 lit (premium wine) 0.75 lit (premium wine) 1 lit (quality wine)
Thin mouthfeel and tart. Semi-opaque amber in color. Different from most other wines I've tasted, has a stronger than usual sour character, but not unpleasant. A solid table wine. Among iron curtain wines, don't like it nearly as much as the Moldavians or Georgians.
Strong smell and taste, but I don't like very much either of those. Acidic taste that stays for long in your mouth.
I thought the opposite of VRider actually. I had this once and thought it was one of the better wines I've ever had. Smooth, mellow scent, an excellent all around red wine. I have since been looking to buy more, but no one has it and stumbled on this site searching for mail-order wine places...
strong, dense taste that preoccupies your senses.
