JORDANOV VRANEC 2018 |NAPA VALLEY
BY THE GLASS / 12
BY THE BOTTLE / 45
From producer, Minco Jordanov. Vranec is native to North Macedonia, Serbia and Montenegro. It is an early budding varietal with thick skins, high tannins and medium-high acidity. Vranec usually has a higher sugar content, richer phenols, and a rounder, fuller body than elsewhere in Eastern Europe. In the glass, Vranec is a deep, rich ruby color, expressing aromas and flavors of dusty cherry, earth, and pie spice. It’s full-bodied and concentrated, but not too tannic or drying – absolutely delicious with lamb, pork, or braised red meats.
Award-Winning Wine Lists
Posana holds distinguished awards from Wine Spectator. Posana was Asheville’s only independent restaurant in 2014 to be awarded Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence. We have continued to achieve that level of recognition through 2018 when they kicked things up a notch and earned Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence, once again to be the only independent restaurant in Asheville to achieve this level of recognition. Posana’s cellar focuses on sourcing wine from small production vineyards with a focus on organic, sustainable, or biodynamic growing and production principles. Posana has maintained Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence consistently since 2018. Recipients of Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence offer a wine list displaying “an excellent breadth across multiple winegrowing regions and/or significant vertical depth of top producers, along with superior presentation. Typically offering 350 or more selections, these restaurants are destinations for serious wine lovers, showing a deep commitment to wine, both in the cellar and through their service team.”
