Minimus Johan Vineyards Blaufrankisch 2015

(9/2016) "I have tasted a few examples of the Blaufrankisch grape from Germany, but this example from Chad Stock's Minimus label is the first I have ever tasted from the United States. The 2015 comes in at a cool 12.8 percent octane and offers up a vibrant bouquet of black cherries, pepper, lovely soil tones, gentle smokiness and a topnote of tree bark. On the palate the wine is medium-full, bright and intensely flavored, with plenty of pepperiness on the palate, a solid core, tangy acids and a long, focused and moderately tannic finish. This is approachable today, but it really deserves at least a few years in the cellar to soften up a bit more on the backend. It has great finishing energy and precision and will be a terrific bottle of wine when it blossoms. (Drink between 2019-2040)"
