Gernot Heinrich

A middle violet and ruby color, scents of ripe cherries and fresh violets. Darker fruit as well as liquorice and chocolate on the palate, finely structured with juicy acidity and medium tannins. A lively wine with a smoothness that lingers. Enjoy with veal cutlets, red sauce based pasta dishes or pork.

Wine Advocate

Heinrich bottled a portion of his basic 2007 Zweigelt - vinified in large ovals and used barriques - very early. Black cherry, purple plum, almond, and fresh fig inform this generous, invigoratingly spicy and saline wine, a faint hint of cherry pit bitterness helping to add contrast to the penetrating, stimulating finish. Concentrated, sappy, primary fresh fruit and distilled fruit overtones make a superb case for the potential of this indigenous red crossing and for this vintage, as well as offering excellent value. Later bottlings - with more time to evolve on the lees - should be even better. This wine can be enjoyed for at least 2-3 years from bottling.

Score: 90. —David Schildknecht, February 2009.

Wine Spectator

Raspberry and fresh red plum fill this lively red, with notes of paprika and milk chocolate prominent on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2011.

Score: 87. —Kim Marcus, 2009.
