2013 Rosi Schuster Sankt Margarethen Blaufrankisch
12% ALC. $124, DRINK BY 2025
This is a triumph of a blaufrankisch with immense concentration and personality. Fermented in a combination of wood and steel, so the wood influence is gentle enough to allow the purity of red and black fruit to shine through, together with a cranberry sourness. The tannins are big here, make no mistake, but they give the endless layers of fruit a firm structure. In a word, superb.
