First time tasting Blaufränkisch, and I have a feeling this was a very good one. I hope I have a chance to try this in the States, but usually the good stuff stays in Europe. Even though I smoked quite a few cigarettes, it actually enhanced the flavors in the wine. This was potent stuff, very animated, trigger happy spicey earth bomb.
FUN FACT: Blaufrankisch is a parent of Gamay
