Black cherries and raspberries on the nose. Acidic and tar like at first taste, not very prevelant in fruit on the palate, a little earthy, showcased the black cherry fruit more so with the duck I had for dinner

Winemaker's Notes:

We are always very happy to release a new vintage of our lovely Blaufränkisch. Over the years this variety has proven its affinity with our climate and we love to use it both as a blending grape and as a varietal bottling. This is a special grape, classified by Charlemagne in the 8th century and grown all over middle and northern Europe with a particular fondness for Austria. Our 2008 version is comprised of 75% Blaufränkisch and 25% Merlot.

Tasting Notes:

The wine has a clear ruby red color with purple inflections. The aromas and flavors are full of red and black raspberries, plums, anise, liqourice, spices and a touch of smoked meat. This is a dry, supple, sexy wine with Burgundian texture. The alcohol is moderate, the acid juicy and balanced, the tannins are present but soft, and the wine offers a great deal of pleasure and a delicious finish.
