Plantaze Lake Skadar Valley 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon (Montenegro), $10.99, 87 points, poured core black trending a rather murky purple/red toward the thin clear wine ring.
The aromas were soft, but pleasant, with dark fruit, chocolate, and a touch of cedar.
Full-bodied, moderately acidic, luscious-firm tannins, and flavors of truffle, plum, and mint.
Finished fair on the trailing palate, easy spice notes, more defined tannin, and a well integrated 13.5% alcohol.
Varietals appear to be 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with Vranac and Merlot.
