|Julia Kelada rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
For anyone starting off on Zinfandels, this is a perfect way to introduce you to a classic. All Zinfandels should be full bodied yet with a smooth transition into a nice round tannin. This wine is bang on for criteria.
On the nose there are raspberries and almost the familiar smell of Christmas! Pomegranate, Nutmeg, cinnamon and pepper. In fact I think that this would be the perfect wine to use as a base to a wondrous winter Mulled wine!
On the palate it was a little lighter than I was expecting from it's nose notes, the fruit did not dissapoint, it started with wild blueberries and then opened up to raspberries and blackberries but slightly intensified as though the fruit was cooked. The spice made its introduction along with a licorice note and ended with its signature round tannins.
A wonderful price at $21.85 it would be great to stock up on for holiday pop ins. We enjoyed ours accompanied by a delicious Moussaka!
