What’s a Sullyzwicker?
Just discovered the Rosehall Run brilliantly named Sullyzwicker Red from Prince Edward County – it was $2 off and easy to find on the end aisle at the LCBO.
I like the sour cherry that I get in this blend of 48% Cabernet Franc, 26% Gamay, and a smattering of Pinot Noir and Syrah. It reminds me of a nice summer BBQ wine. Maybe it’s me longing for the Mediterranean sun but it tastes like a Macon Gamay from France or a Bardolino from Italy. I don’t think we need to recork this bottle tonight.
The name is a blend of winemaker Dan Sullivan‘s name and the word Edelzwicker – a German term that is used to describe blended white wines. Great name and a great red wine that will become a party favorite once everyone discovers it.
