A friend of mine, German, just returned from a trip to Germany and told me about a wine he drank there called "Dornfelder" and how much he liked it. I was a the the local big box liquor store and asked for some and was sold a wine that on the labe, identifies it as a sweet wine. The label on back of the bottle specifies it to be Dornfelder. I bought two bottle from two different vintners.
My friend said the dornfelder he had abroad was not sweet but rather was more likea cab.sav. or merlot. I regret disagreeing with him because, though not a wine authority,he typically knows of what he speaks.
Wazzup? Is there a drier dornfelfer or does he, for once, have his head underwater, re: dornfelder?
Thank you for your responses.
