Genetic testing has revealed that Plavac Mali, an indigenous Croatian variety, is in fact Zinfandel's long-lost offspring. The grape has all of Zinfandel's plush fruit and food-friendly charms, but delivers them in a decidedly lighter frame.

These ruggedly structured yet high-toned reds display a distinct maritime salinity. Zinfandel's brighter, more nimble Mediterranean cousin is bold enough for the barbecue, but also pair beautifully with fatty grilled fish, like bluefish or salmon--something their Californian cousins are generally too heavy to pull off.
