Early Mountain Vineyards 2018 Blaufrankisch Petillant-Naturel
There is an earthy, peppery edge a nose dominated by ripe black cherry and high-toned purple flower aromas. The supremely juicy, focused palate offers more of the same with terrific acidity and just a little black cherry skin tannin grip. As it warms just a little, there is an intriguing savory/umami note that emerges that brings complexity to a finish that is a little yeasty and minerally.
