Egri Muskotaly 2004

Member Review by dbhonig:

Undrinkable crap. Bought it on a flyer at a Russian maret, and even for $7.99 I'm bitter about buying it. I wanted to clean the disposal I poured it down, if that gives you any idea.

Egri Bikavér ("Bull's Blood of Eger") is Hungary's most famous red wine. It comes from the Eger wine region of northern Hungary; the Szekszárd region produces a similar wine with similar name (Szekszárdi Bikavér) but with different character. Egri Bikavér is a blend that has varied over the years, although the blend is anchored by the ancient Kadarka variety. Kadarka is believed to have arrived during the Turkish invasion of the 16th century, either by the Turks themselves or by Serbs displaced by them. It is a difficult grape to vinify, and has increasingly been replaced by Blaufränkisch, known locally as Kékfrankos. Officially Egri Bikavér must contain at least three of the following 13 grapes: Kadarka, Kékfrankos, Blauer Portugieser (Kékoportó), Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Menoire (known as Kékmedoc, or Médoc noir before), Pinot noir, Syrah, Turán, Bíborkadarka and the modern Austrian crossings, Blauburger and Zweigelt  Read less

Wine Tasting NotesEgri Bikaver uses individual grapevine grades, separately picked, in order to produce this wine according to the 500-year-old recipe. Bull's Blood contains the best features of grapes such as Kekfrankos, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Oporto. This wine embodies a harmony of tannin, velvetiness, and delicacy, along with its characteristic aroma. Serving Suggestions: Open one hour before serving; serve at 60-64 degrees F. Egri Bikaver Bull's Blood is an outstanding wine for spicy game, roasts, steaks, and other beef dishes.

There's nothing to fear in this bottle of Bull's Blood. Its rustic, sturdy character makes it perfect with anything grilled or (even better) spit-roasted.
