This Dornfelder goes through an extended maceration period using late harvest Dornfelder grapes from Germany. This wine is a spooky twist on the iconic German black cat.
THE LEGEND OF THE BLACK CAT
Three wine merchants came to the town of Zell, in Germany, to buy some wine. They couldn’t agree on which one was the best when a black cat suddenly jumped on one of the barrels, arches its back, its fur standing on end, and swiped its paw at anyone who tried to get closer. The wine merchants quickly came to an agreement and chose the barrel which was defended by the cat, thinking that it probably contained the best wine.
