This is Kekfrankos (Blaufrankish) from the northern side of Lake Balaton in Hungary. Ruby/purple in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has cherries and black cherries. Very nice. Nice mouthfeel/texture. On the palate, this has nice sour cherry fruit with underlying char and minerals. An almost seamless texture which is rare in a wine at this price point. Good balance. This should drink well for the next five to seven years. I imagine this would go well with Töltött Káposzta (stuffed cabbage).
This is 100% Kekfrankos (Blaufrankisch). Ruby in color, purple at the core, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has sour cherries with a note of mint. On the palate, this has chunky tannins. Nice sour cherry fruit with tingling acidity. Nice texture. 12% abv. This drinks like a cru Beaujolais although it may not age quite as well. Good value. This will do better with food. Drink over the next five years. A nice match with stew/Goulash.
This is a sparkling wine bottled with a crown cap and made from Kekfrankos (Blaufrankish). It is unique. On popping the top, it took a few seconds and then foam started to gush out despite making sure the wine bottle has not been shaken. Very foamy. It has a vibrant electric ruby color, mostly clear if a bit cloudy. The foam is white medium sized bubbles with a slight cherry red hue. The nose is very tight with slight strawberries. More come out with air. On the palate, this reminds me of Faygo Red Pop that I drank as a kid. Others said Cherry Ne-Hi. It is not dry but not particul
This is made from the Blaufrankish grape. Really an excellent wine. This is deep ruby in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is great with sour cherries, plums, dust, baking spices, anise and a slight meaty note. Complex and big. Full bodied. On the palate, this is delicious. Lots of upfront plums turning to sour cherries. Underneath is a meaty/earthy quality with some black pepper. Like a mythical cross of Cote Rotie and Oregon Pinot Noir. This is complex and lively. It seems like it is near peak but then again it drinks youthfully. Without much experience with this grape
And now for something completely different. Ruby in color. The nose has black peppercorns, with some cherry/cranberry notes. On the palate, this is thin but still has structure and strength. Good acidity. The peppery red berry notes continue thru. Would work with a lot of different foods. In fact, it really does beg for food to tame the acid and flavors. A really interesting wine.
