Premier Cru

Rich, deep, and full bodied, this is our estate offering of Eger’s most famous red blend. In Eger it is called Bull’s Blood, a name the wine received after a famous battle when the Hungarians fended off the Turks that invaded the country but were pushed out.

Our Rhapsody shows expressive aromas and flavors of ripe berries and cherries, highlighted by spicy oak and plush tannins. The components of this wine create a harmonious performance, comparable to a Gershwin musical composition. Unlike other Bulls Blood wines in the United States, this beautiful blend is a treat for the senses that is sure to delight new and old friends alike.
