DINGAC 2010 PELJESAC RED

Although wine has been made in Croatia since the time of the Ancient Greeks, the Croatian wine industry really took off after the Republic of Croatia declared its independence from Yugoslavia in 1991. Croatia’s best known red wine is made from the Plavac Mali grape, a relative of Zinfandel. The Dingac Winery is located on the southern slopes of the Peljesac Peninsula along Croatia’s Dalmatian coast. The 2010 Peljesac (100% Plavac Mali) displays the dark berry fruit and mild spiciness of a California Zin without the heaviness or high alcohol found in some from the Golden State. On the nose you find spice, black pepper and blackberry notes which lead to sweet cherry fruit and light spice in the mouth. This is a fruit forward, uncomplicated red with the flavors of a Zin and the body of a Beaujolais Village. The slight hint of sweetness on the finish makes this a good red to serve with cheese and crackers. It will also go well with burgers, pizza, grilled sausages and
barbecued chicken.
