Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby red color. Pronounced fresh cherry and sour cherry aromas with spice notes. Round and juicy on the palate, with flavors of dark cherry and spice against a backdrop of soft tannins.

Wonderful with steak and burgers thanks to its concentration of fruit flavors, and versatile enough to pair with pasta dishes and pizza.

100% Zweigelt

Critical Acclaim

"Whether or not you approve of the name, this is an impressive zweigelt, its dark cherry and raspberry flavors gaining complexity from hints of game and wood smoke. The contrast between juicy fruitiness and edgier, earthier components creates vibrant tension."

Great value. Similar to a full-bodied Pinot, IMO. Would love to see more wines from this region.

This wine was smooth and mildly sweet. Was a huge hit at a gourmet party. Paired well with all, but spicy tamales.

Interesting. Smooth and a bit fruity. I think I'll stick with Pinots instead.
