Kirnbeier's Das Phantome is their flagshop bottling and a groundbreaking Austrian blend featuring their most noble variety Blaufrankisch alongide a trio of international varieties. Blaufrankisch states its noble claim beside Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Merlot. Blaufränkisch is Austria's most noble and ageworthy red grape. It's flavor profile immediately demonstrates the complexity you would expect from a top performing variety. Peppery, but maybe not as intense as Syrah. Herbaceous and resinous, but not to the same degree as in Cabernet Franc. Its flavors have a sophisticated balance of fruit, spice and herbaceousness packed in around a medium-full body with assertive structure for a hearty meal. This is the first successful attempt I have discovered of blending Blaufrankisch with international varieties for this "Super-Austrian" wine. The wine does spend 18 months in partially new french oak, but it is done very classily.
