Made from a single vineyard, this is Franz Weninger's flagship wine. Pure Blaufränkisch, it shows all the exotic flavors of the grape—mineral, spices, black cherries—packaged with dark tannins and smoky, toasty wood. To finish, there is cocoa along with a touch of sweet citrus. Great aging potential.
