Lenz Moser 2012 "Prestige" Reserve Blauer Zweigelt

$19.49
Violet color. Lively, attractive, peppery aromas of smoked peppercorns, rhubarb, and spiced rubbed meat with a satiny, lively, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and an even, amusing, cheery red berries, cocoa-dusted nuts, and minerals finish with fine tannins and light oak. A nicely balanced dry red that will be great spicy meat dishes.
