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.

Blaufrankisch

Blaufrankisch is a red wine produced from the eponymous variety in Austria. It also goes by the name of Lemberger in Germany.

The grape has high tannins and acidity; most of the wines are aged in small oak barrels to lessen the youthful bitterness. Blaufrankisch is often an intense red with flavors of mulberries, cranberries, tobacco and even cinnamon and mocha. Lighter versions that sell for a little more than $10 are ideal with grilled pork or BBQ foods, while richer, more expensive, more age worthy examples are best paired with prime rib, lamb and game.
