Frankenseele, Spätburgunder 2016, Franken, Germany
Tasting Note: Spätburgunder in a proletariat style that should accompany more meals.
Medium-intensity ruby in color with garnet around the edges, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of red rose petal, strawberry, red cherry and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied pinot noir has medium-intensity, red-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and medium tannin.
The wine is straightforward but channels the grape in its basic form.
Price: 5 Euro ($6)
