One of the Austrian grapes that I’m fond of – I buy some of this every time I head up to the Traverse City area.
Aurora Blaufrankisch (2014) Leelanau Peninsula, Michigan – $22
Color: medium red.
Aroma: lots of red fruit, plus some blueberry and bramble notes.
Taste: not too big, with tannins and some oak up front, then red currants, cranberry, and pepper. More oak and tannins on the finish.
I think this needs another year or two before it’s really ready.
