Bright ruby color. Earthy, peppery aromas of underripe cherries, forest floor, jalapeño pepper, and whole black peppercorns with a velvety, lively, dryish light-to-medium body and a seamless, compelling, medium-length raspberry leaf, meringue, raw macadamia nut, and bay leaf and wet stones finish with fine, coating tannins and no oak flavor. A purely gulpable Zweigelt.

Zweigelt

Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
Zweigelt is the most widely planted red grape in Austria and produces a rich, almost peppery wine with ripe cherry flavors and balanced acidity. Tannins for most examples are firm and most wines are aged in oak. Pair these wines with pork game birds and stews. There are also some notable examples of Zweigelt Rosé, which are quite dry.
