The time has come to think of Blaufränkisch (a.k.a. Lemberger) as the poor man's Beaujolais.
This took a while to open up... but with a little patience, man, one reaps rewards. Dark brambly fruit, light-bodied, but still a brooding wine, with supple, fine tannins. Had this chilled. Rainer Schnaitmann runs his cozy winery in a suburb near Stuttgart, where he serenades his barrels to Mozart, in the glow of candlelight. Lovely wine. — a month ago
