Though you may not be familiar with the Vranac grape by name, it is genetically related to Primitivo and Zinfandel. Aromas of coffee, oak, toast, bacon and plum stand out on the nose. The palate offers more mocha tones with a sweet-edged red fruit core. Quite New World in its style, it will be a fine match for a spicy beef and broccoli stir-fry. (VINTAGES panel, Nov. 2013).
