Bellview Winery 2015 Blaufrankisch
The oak is a bit forward on the nose, stacking both chocolate and vanilla on top ripe cherry fruit and leathery spice. On the palate, that oak steps back revealing beautiful, ripe Blaufrankisch in all of its cherry-and-spice glory. With medium-light body and medium tannins, there is a tautness to the palate that is also still quite fresh. I'm really curious where this wine will go as it develops in the bottle over time.
