"The 2017 Burgenland Blaufränkisch is pure and fruity on the fresh, precise nose and offers a charm, which is quite rare given this wild and spicy grape variety. Silky and intense on the palate, this is a fleshy, well-concentrated and pretty intense red from the deep and clayey soils of Zagersdorf. The fine, cultivated tannins are intermixed with refreshing, Pinot-like acidity, and the finish is aromatic, taut and dry, like thick cherry skins. Gorgeous." -Robert Parker
"This elegant red shows medium density, with tannins to match, and a core of plum and dark cherry flavors. Dark chocolate and spice notes glide along, adding complexity, as this evolves with each sip. Very fresh and long on the finish. Charming now, but should develop more with age."
