Dusty ruby color. Aromas and flavors of grilled peppers, baked mulberries, barnyard, and toasted dill and herbs with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, delightful, medium-long finish that presents suggestions of toasty cedar and earth with crunchy, dusty, earthy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A savory and spicy red that will shine at the table.

Other Austrian Red

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.
