Egri Bikavér (Bull’s blood of Eger) 2004

Egri Bikaver 2004This Egri Bikavér (Bull’s blood of Eger) 2004 from Hungary is a light-bodied, fruity red table wine. We bought it at Trader Joe’s in Ann Arbor.

It’s quite simple and we probably won’t stock up on this, but it’s fun to try a Hungarian wine.

    Hi,
    FYI, this is a epp hungarian blend, here in Hungary we use that max for cooking, it would cost you 1,5$ so please dont treat hungarian wines based on this bottle.
    We have couple of really nice ones, believe or not:)

    Hi,
    Actually try this wine with the label, “Egervin” Egri Bikaver it is the same type of wine. But I find this to be smoother and a little lighter than the wine you have posted here. Also try Tokai Azsu, this meaning “The wine of Kings, and The King of wines” This wine’s sweetness level is counted on a points scale, 6 being the sweetest, 1 being the least sweet. I would try a 3 or 4. Also keep in mind Tokai Azsu is a dessert wine, my suggestion is to drink it by itself, but its your call.
