P.J. Valckenberg, Dornfelder 2014, Rheinhessen, Germany
Tasting Note: A dornfelder that drinks like sangria in a bottle.
Medium-to-deep intensity ruby in color this wine has an aromatic nose of red cherry, black plum, raspberry and blossom.
On the palate the off-dry, medium-bodied wine presents a mix of bright red and black fruit flavors.
There is some mid-palate flavor concentration that completes with a medium finish.
A fun, low-alcohol straightforward wine that will save you from having to make sangria when friends come over.
Serve slightly chilled.
Bottle Note: Nose: cherry pie aromas with a hint of vanilla. Taste: lightly sweet, cherry and vanilla notes. Pair: Beef, past, barbecue, cherry pie, chocolate.
