Black Is Black

The title reminded me of this 60's classic....back when people could sing and there was a melody! Los Bravos.

The Luckerts believe in tradition...but they don't belong to the Franken Wine Authority...they choose their own way...and that is shown by this wine. Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot...not the norm for this area...
Weingut Zehnthof Luckert
Grand Noir *** Tafelwein 2005
Franken, Germany
I suppose the name should have pre-warned me..I just pesumed it was a name......but the colour was inky black..opaque! The aroma gives an impression of coolness..minerals..hidden spices...and on the palate pretty much the same.....if you are drinking this now...down it quickly with friends..because it grew more aggressive with airing..and next day became a real 'biter'..the depth and tannins telling you not to touch him too early. No chance of that...the wine is sold out! A rarity indeed....
