Tasting Notes: Blaufränkisch is an Austrian grape variety that grows very well in Northern Michigan. This wine shows the typical black pepper and blueberry tones the grape is known for. It has similarities to Pinot Noir and Syrah. The black pepper and wild raspberries are held by fine tannins. This red wine is as distinct as the land that nursed it to life.
