The grape here is called Rotburger not to be confused with the German white Rotberger.  It is the same as Zweigelt, however, its creator Dr. Zweigelt (in 1922) later became a Nazi and many people do not want to allow the grape to be named after him.  Garnet in color, mostly opaque and bright.  The nose has cherries, black cherries and slight cranberries along with a bit of char.  Full bodied.  On the palate, this has a nice complexity.  It seems to be about at peak with nice black cherries and cranberries and slight minerality.  A bit of roasted herbs as well.  This drinks nice on its own but will be better with food.  It will work very nicely with grilled salmon.
