St. Donatus Estate Balatonboglari Merlot Semi-Sweet 2005

        • Apple,Pear
        • Piquant
        • Coffee Blossom, Tea Rose
        • Spritzy
        • Chamois
Although we have not reviewed Hungarian wines yet, we have tasted several and found them all interesting. This particular wine had a predominately sweet, prickling sensation at the tip of the tongue. Also, a honey apple sauce opening leading to a baked cherry finish across a constant spritzy backdrop. It would potentially be an interesting replacement for those who like port with chocolate or even certain cigars.

4.5/5 - $5.49
