Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 91/100
Made by Hess Winery, this full-on Zinfandel is a great partner for grilled meats. Big aromas of blackberry, blueberry and brambleberry with some underbrush as a backdrop. Start a romance with this wine. Lip-smacking delicious.
Zinfandel food pairings: pizza, lamb kabobs, nachos, turkey and cranberry sauce, barbecue ribs.

Reviews and Ratings
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Not your typical California Zinfandel. There is definite elegance to this wine. Medium ruby colour showing developing aromas and flavours of blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, plum,raspberry, violets, cinnamon, beef boullion, vanilla, black earth, garrigue, herbs de Provence.
Full-bodied with chewy tannins. Acidity is lively enough to handle all the complexities of this wine. Lingering warm and elegant finish.
Drknk now, suitable for further ageing. 2017
Food pairing: BBQ spare ribs, pizza. I enjoyed this wine all on it's own.
Tasted April 2014
|Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Medium Ruby in colour, with intense flavours of raspberry, blueberry, black fruit, cinnamon, chocolate, cloves, violets, and savoury forest floor complexity. The velvety tannins and refreshing acidity carry through on the long, elegant finish.
Drink now, or cellar until 2017.
Pair with BBQ beef, lamb, or savour on its own.
Date tasted: April 2014.
