Channing Daughters Blaufränkisch 2006
75% Blaufrankisch, 25% Merlot. ORGANIC. Flavors and aromas of spice, black pepper, plum, meat, black cherry, black raspberry, blackberry and a hint of mint define the wine. There are soft, polished tannins with wonderfully integrated oak from twelve months in older barrels and a plump, polished texture with a delicious finish.<br/><br/><strong>Top Restaurants: </strong><br/><br/>Wines from Channing Daughters are on the wine list of these famous restaurants:<br/><br/>Adour (Ducasse)DanielGramercy TavernLe Bernardin Per SeBlue Hill (Stone Barns) French Laundry (CA)
86% Blaufrankisch and 14% merlot, and a little less interesting than previous vintages.The nose is the most intriguing aspect, offering lots of cherry aromas, with plum, a faint gamey hint and earthy, smoky notes. On the palate, however, it's a bit more straightforward, with juicy cherry flavors, a little plum, and just a little earthiness. Structure is brought more by acidity than tannin here.It's still worth checking out, but mostly for the novelty. I really miss the smoky gaminess on the palate that previous bottlings featured.
