Mari reviewed this wine:
Light red in color and clear in density, this wine had a nose of dense ripe fruit. The mouth shows super ripe, dried black fruit and sizzling acidity on a medium body that’s pretty lean. The finish is medium length, with notes of raisin and root beer before it turns hot. The wine tastes cooler than expected from 16% alcohol, but physically, you feel the heat. The longer the wine breathes, the boozier it gets. Potent and bold, Kettle Vally is probably the most Californian of all the BC Zins. Not a sipping wine, it tastes great with chicken sausage, caramel cake and chocolate cookies.
