Mount Salem Vineyards 2015 Zweigelt
Juicy fresh red that smells mostly of fresh red cherries with subtle aromas of spice and tobacco. Similarly bright and fresh on the palate, it's medium-light in body with more punchy red cherry flavors that turn toward raspberry on the mid-palate before returning to cherry -- but dried cherry -- on the finish. Is it a little straightforward? Sure, but it's also a charming, easy-to-drink red that begs for simply prepared foods.
Not meant for aging, I'd drink this one now. A cheap fake cork is unlikely to protect it long-term, anyway.
