Wine of the Week - Presque Isle Wine Cellar 2010 Dornfelder


This is my favorite pick from my recent excursion to northwest Pennsylvania's wine region.  This is very good stuff; sort of a Burgundy-style wine that I'd put up against the stuff I typically drink out here in California.

Blackberry and cinnamon scents on the nose, but much deeper flavors on the tongue: burnt leather and licorice.  Nutmeg.  Slightly on the watery side - the mouthfeel, that is; definitely not a "watered down" taste.  Highly recommended.

And a modest 11% alcohol.
