Rich, red / brownish brick colour. Delicious harmony of dried fruit and dried flowers with nice hints of herbs and wood. The tannins and fine and soft with nice length and body.
Tasted June 2012.
This wine opened up with aromas of ripe berries, plum, cherry, white pepper and wood smoke. On the mouthfeel, medium-full bodied, with a solid core of ripe fruit, rhubarb, fresh acidity and fine grainy tannins. This Zin finish was long with a good depth of flavours, fine tannins on a nice acidity lift. I love this kind of Zinfandel with ripe and rich fruit but not over done or jammy or to alcoholic. This is the third bottle which I opened and they have all been consistent. Strongly recommended, enjoyed in May 2012.
