Just Being Frank is our latest addition to the Recline Ridge line-up. It is 100% Blaufrankisch and we decided to give it a name which describes this wonderfully-fruity red varietal as a straight-forward, simply-delicious cool-climate red
Blaufrankisch (German for blue Frankish) is a dark-skinned, late-ripening variety, and produces red wines which are typically rich in tannin and may exhibit a pronounced spicy character. This varietal has its' origins in Central Europe, and is grown successfully in Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, and also in North America and specifically in Washington State, where it is often known as "Lemberger".
Just Being Frank has aromas of dark ripe cherries, red currants and blackberries and can be paired with lamb dishes and grilled meats. Our winemaker recommends Just Being Frank with a bacon-wrapped steak!!!
Awards for Just Being Frank, include Gold at the 2017 Cascadia and Savour NW Wine Competitions, and also a Bronze with the 2017 NorthWest Wine Summit.
