Tikves Vranec 2015
The word Vranec refers to a powerful black stallion or raven and wine made from this grape variety is associated with strength, determination, and resolve – the Zig Ziglar of wine, if you will. Testament to the success of the Tikves winery, founded in 1885, this Vranec is a beautiful reportage of place – from vineyards planted at an elevation of 500 meters above sea level where temperatures are moderated by cool breezes. Fermentation occurs in large wooden vats followed by aging in French oak barrels which affords richly layered, lavish red fruits, warm vanilla notes, crème brulee, and fresh tobacco. This is a delicious companion to chili and burgers, black and white pepper-rich dishes, glazed bitter greens, and beautiful cuts of beef.
