This is a biodynamically made Kekfrankos (Blaufrankisch) from one of Hugary's top winemakers of red wines.  This is the base version.  Ruby in color, clear and bright.  The nose has cherries and sour cherries with a bit of hay and a slight green herbal notes.  On the palate, this is has a nice texture.  Very nice tart cherry fruit over a bit of smoky char with a nice backbone of acidity.  Light tannins.  Nice finish.  Very good value.  Drink over the next five years.   This will work well with Lecsó (vegetable stew) although carnivores might want to add Hurka & Kolbász (sausages).
