Why I Tried this Wine: I always like a good Zin, however, this was featured as part of my food and wine course. Visit the winery located in California’s Gold Rush County and see a 42 foot stone fireplace, along with a museum dedicated to the gold rush era. Wine and gold, what more could you want?
Tasting Notes: a dark cherry colour
Aromas of blackberry, raspberry, cherry, vanilla and spices. Combined these aromas give this wine cooked fruit (jammy) notes on the nose along with what I like to call sweet smoke.
Flavours of raspberry, cherry, vanilla.
This is a medium bodied, fruit forward wine with low tannins and good acidity. It finishes smooth and short with flavours of raspberry and vanilla.
Food Pairing: think grilled red meats, steak fajitas
Would I buy this Wine Again: This is a good introduction to red wine for those who tend to reach for whites more often or for those just venturing into the world of red wines.
