|Vera Czerny rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:|
As always, Mara's Dolinsek Ranch Zinfandel has a deep ruby, almost purple color.You don't want to spill it on your white shirt because that stain will never go away. Lovely aroma of ripe dark fruit, raspberry and black cherry, even ripe plum on the nose. On the palate it's a rich, full body flavor with spicy notes like tarragon and a lot of fruit expression.
Dusty cacao or chocolate flavors on the finish, combined with a light vanilla of American oak. This is a huge, masculine wine that needs to be decanted to fully enjoy. Just like Charles Mara always says: decant your wine so that the first glass taste like the last one.
Aged in Oak
