60% Zweigelt, 30% Blaufränkisch, 10% St. Laurent, aged 12 mos. in barrique and Slavonian oak cask. Deep ruby color with aromatics dominated by pepper. This wine needs ample air to open up, and then there are rose hips, red currant, and cranberry notes. On the palate it's supple with medium tannins, nice acidity, and peppery red fruits. 13% abv | $16 (sample)

Light fruity yet balanced with acid. Nice fall wine.

Nose is funky. Flat acid, dried out tannins. Feels like it's past drinking window. Dull fruit and a little reductive. Simple and unbalanced.

Paired perfect with the 72 hour short rib. Light mouth feel and slight acidity break through the heaviness of that amazing dish.

Dinner wine at Longfellows German-Austrian wine dinner. Paired beautifully with Wiener schnitzel. Terrific blend.
