Shooting Star Sra Lake County California 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose is faint with hints of ripe berries. Medium-bodied with tons of blue and red fruit flavors. Creamy texture that reminds me of blueberry cheesecake. Soft tannins, but with a nice amount of acidity. This wine is not aged in oak, so there are no oak flavors.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

My first Blaufränkisch and I have to say it's a beauty. Well structured tannins and cranberry flavors make this an excellent bargain at 15 dollars.

We enjoyed this wine at a wine dinner with roasted duck. Great pairing. This wine is bold, fruity, and soft with a full body. A very good value.

Decanted 1 hour. Nose of smoked meat, blackberry and leather. Berry, black pepper and smoke on the palate with a nice spicy finish. A little young, I think, but enjoyable for $10. Nice QPR.

Great color, medium body, dense, rich velvety fruit. It is delicious and ready for enjoyment.
