Natalie's Score: 91/100

A powerful Zinfandel, plushy with ripe plum compote, strawberry jam, black cherry, fine herbs and pepper spice flavours savoury on the palate. Full and mouth-coating with a lingering flinty, smoky finish. Tannins are structured and there is juicy acidity for ribs and burgers.

Zinfandel food pairings: spaghetti Bolognaise, aged cheddar, grilled duck breast, cheese pizza.

Delightful Duck Wine

Reviews and Ratings

From the Paso Robles, Paso Creek 2017 Zinfandel is a medium-bodied, juicy Zin with ripe strawberry, blueberry, raspberry jam with a sweet spice and smoky finish. Pairs with saucy ribs or BBQ chicken. The Californian region is situated between Santa Barbera and San Francisco and has the widest temperature swings of any grape growing region in the state. This causes the vines to create small clusters of grapes that are deep concentrated in flavour and richly flavoured wines. Small lot winemaking and barrel aging allows the character of the wine to emerge. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
