CategoryRed Wine

Blend100% Blaufrankish (Lemberger)

The Shady Lane Cellars Blue Franc 2013 is a versatile and delicious red wine with big fruit flavor. This wine is made from 100% Blaufrankish (Lemberger) grapes. The first Shady Lane vintage of this wine was produced in 2007, and the winemaker’s goal of creating a lush and fruity red was met and surpassed. The 2013 vintage is full of concentrated blueberry, mulberry, and blackberry flavors. The mouthfeel is big, with soft and luxurious tannins. Notes of black pepper and cedar spice add interest. This wine is a versatile food wine that pairs especially well with grilled beef.
