Bellview Winery, Blaufränkisch 2016, Outer Coastal Plain, New Jersey
Tasting Note: A good blaufränkisch with lovely fruit that makes it a versatile red to pair with many a meal.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of raspberry, dried red cherry, plum, boysenberry and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied blaufränkisch has medium-to-medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and medium tannin.
The wine is straightforward and slightly-reserved on the medium finish.
Chill slightly before serving to bring out the acidity.
Bottle Note: This unique red wine incorporates bold notes of vanilla and violets. The palate blossoms with cherry and fig flavors and extends into a lasting and luxurious finish. This wine pairs well with red meats and is a wonderful conversation starter for any wine lover.
