Tasting Notes: Cherry, Berry, Floral, Plum
The Herzog family has been making wine for a long time. They trace their winemaking origins back to Philip Herzog, who made wine in Slovakia for the Austro-Hungarian court more than a century ago. Philip's wines were so appreciated by Emperor Franz-Josef, that the emperor made Philip a baron.
This is one of the newest additions to the ever-popular Baron Herzog series of California wines, which House & Garden magazine called, "the best kosher wines in America.” This is a wine that is pointedly jeunesse - which is French for youthful, flavorful and fun. Aged for 18 months in stainless steel to highlight its berry and plum notes, it finishes with fruity blackberry and spice flavors. It is light in the mouth with food-friendly acidity, tannin and a hint of sweetness.
