Dornfelder is a German Wine that is a full bodied red with plenty of tannins. It also tends to be a bit sweet in flavor. The color is a deep dark red. Be wary because your teeth will be tinted after a glass. Nothing permanent, just part of the experience. See the picture to get a hint of the dark color.
The Hubers were pouring 2 Dornfelders. I preferred the 2005 Huber Charlotte's reserve Dornfelder. It was jammy and rich and delicious. For me , its the perfect dessert wine or night cap. And its named after their beloved dog who passed away this year.
We had our good friend of the Huber's with us so we got to tour the Huber's Wine Celler in their house. For a second we all felt like we were in Germany. The Huber wood carved crest greets you on your way down. ( see picture)
Cheers for Charlotte was a fantastic West Coast Wine Country Adventure.
