Nothing too exciting here but a great weeknight wine when you don't want to spend a ton of money. Very smooth and easy drinking.

Smell reminded me of vanilla, pepper, all spice. Bold, earthy wine with a dried fruit finish

Tasty, juicy and supple. Pinot Noir weight with Cabernet Franc aromas and flavor profile. Very good.

Whoa. This stuff is seriously the bee's knees. Small biodynamic producer from Slovenia. This is a wine of firsts for me; first Slovenian wine and first Blaufrankisch. This particular one has an almost gamey herbaceousness to it that I didn't expect based on what I've heard about Blaufrankisch, but it's certainly appreciated. This kinda reminds me of a more wild, rustic Chinon or Saumur-Champigny; definitely gives a lot of similar vibes to Loire Cab Franc in general for me, which is amazing because I love Loire CF with a raging passion. Kinda reminds me of a cross between Cab Franc and Frappato, maybe? I dunno, but it's rad. Scents of cracked black pepper, dill, green bell pepper, fresh cranberry, dried cherry, dried rose and violet, a tiny bit of wood smoke, and wet crushed gravel are translated quite congruently on the palate, carried by nice pleasant, moderate (+) acidity and supported by moderate, supple tannin. This stuff is like, ridiculously complex for it's $17 price tag at my local shop, I need to snag all of this up next time I go to the store.
