Ruby black color. Aromas and flavors of spiced currants and pomegranates, herbs and peppercorns, butter roasted nuts, and tar with a supple, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, brisk finish evoking elements of cranberry, cherry cider, and dusty earth with crunchy, dusty tannins and light oak flavor. A tart, dry, firm Austrian red for the table.

While white wines are predominant in Austria, there are several excellent red produced there as well. These include such wines as Zweigelt, Blaüfrankisch, Blauburger and St. Laurent. While each of these wines have their own particular characteristics, Austrian reds in general have rather high acidity (especially for red wines) along with a spicy herbal edge, along with varying degrees of tannins. Most can be aged for five to ten years and demand food, especially heartier fare such as game or beef.
