"The 2011 Vranec Special Selection, 100% Vranec aged in stainless steel for four to six months, exhibits notes of tomato skins, bouquet garni, raspberries and sweet and sour cherries. Medium-bodied and spicy with a narrow finish, it should be consumed over the next 2-3 years. It is a good bistro-styled red for uncritical drinking."

Tikves WinesWine from Eastern Europe is on the cusp of being the next big thing. All the elements are there: an ancient grape-growing tradition, great terroirs, indigenous varieties, new investment, and a youthful generation of farmers and winemakers who came of age after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Before this epic event, wine in Eastern Europe was mainly a bulk product from frightfully high yields resulting in quality on par with Yugo or Trabant.

Founded in 1885, TikveŇ° Winery has witnessed the independence of the Balkans, two world wars and one cold one, yet through it all they have continued to make wines from grapes native to the region: RKaticeli, Kratosija, Vranec and Plavec. With the fall of communism and independence of Macedonia this historic estate was privatized and new investments were made to update the practices in the vineyard and cellar. Sustainable farming has replaced industrial farming, yields have been lowered and indigenous varieties have been preserved. With the assistance of Philippe Cambie, they have modernized their cellar practices by utilizing temperature-controlled stainless steel for fermentations with concrete and French oak barrels for aging.

"I had read that the French oenologist, Philipe Cambie, had consulted on this wine. Since I have liked every other wine he has made, I wanted to try this one. Excellent wine, nice structure, dark color, nice finish."
