Monthly WTF wine group meet up. Theme was “bring something good”. All wines (minus the bubbles and SB) were tasted blind.

Posting my note below as I had this wine about two weeks ago and notes are consistent. I was torn between Blaufränkisch or Spätburgunder. Thanks
@Jeff Meyer .

This is so fruit forward up front before it falls off a cliff and punches you with chalky tannins. Geez. It’s both floral and lean. Starts off with fresh squeezed black cherries, rhubarb tart and rose petal before drastically hitting you with high percentage dark cocoa, bitter root, and cracked black peppercorn. Tannic.

Yesterday’s Wednesday Wine Committee, hosted by @Jeff Meyer , was so educational with fantastic German & Austrian wines. 1 sparkler, 5 whites, 5 reds, 1 dessert wine. All served blind as usual.

I called this Blaufränkisch.

@Bill Bender : Saw your post from 4yrs ago about this wine. Agreed!
