Dark garnet color. Aromas and flavors of ripe plums, caramel brownies, tomato leaf, baking spices, and sun dried tomatoes with a satiny, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, appealing, medium-length finish with a suggestion of oak flavor. A light and earthy Blaufrankisch with lovely balance and easy pairability.

Violet color. Earthy aromas of nuts roasted in a cast iron pan, dried blueberries, pencil shavings, and smoked peppercorns with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, stimulating, medium-long pomegranate compote, oven-dried tomato, ground nuts, and cedar finish with fine tannins and light oak flavor. A wonderful example of blaufrankisch with great varietal character, balance and sense of place.
