Price: $11 per bottle
What is Burntray? We found this at Fulkerson Winery last spring. They say it is a blend of Noiret, a new hybrid and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wine is a dark ruby red wine, there is some fruit on the nose. The first taste has graphite tones with some blackberry fruit. A fully body wine that could be matched with a steak or any hardier meal. We had this with an eggplant casserole, it went very well with the tomato sause based dinner. The wines tannins are present first the first sip to the finish. The tannins are ever present, but are mellow are provide for a nice drinking experience. I really liked this wine and the price point I will stop at Fulkerson just to purchase another bottle or two of Burntray.
