While bold and rich with a concentrated black fruit character, Korta Katarina's Plavac Mali is also wonderfully expressive with glimmers of rose petal, espresso and chocolate under a spray of raspberry perfume. Big, ripe tannins subside with aeration to a smooth, finely grained texture, finishing on a delicious black cherry and vanilla note.
