Dark berries and pepper notes on the nose
Nicely textured, medium bodied
Finishes with berries, grapefruit, herbs, and pepper
Austrian Zweigelt is a nice change of pace in the red wine category. It's characteristics place it somewhere between Pinot Noir, Gamay, and Grenache, with a medium bodied and a peppery finish. This wine is particularly peppery, but it also has nice layers throughout.
Put it to the test with food- and it will stand up to a variety of dishes. I paid $18 for the wine at a specialty wine and cheese shop. Raise a glass!
