Sike Tamás Pincészete Egri Bikavér 2005
Wine Tasting Notes Egri 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.
Ahhh you get what you pay for. :) Very dry and acidic. Not very falvorful.
2005 12.5% ABV Red blend 750mL $7.99 Dark garnet to dried blood red. Aromas of smoke, leather, chalk and metal with a slight hot note. Intense berries, wood and earth with a metallic finish. Sweeter mouthfeel than expected and slightly acidic.
Pretty good wine for the price. Much better than most of the table wines from France sold in the U.S.
may be a good cooking wine, not to drink alone. very "acidic", not a lot of flavor
Three and a half glasses
