Zinfandel is often the epitome of a “new world” wine. It’s famous for being bold, spicy and loaded with big fruit flavors. Some love it for those reasons and some avoid it for those reasons. If you’re a zinfandel lover who likes big, fruity wines this is a nice one for you.
The fruit aromas, laced with spice, jump out of this wine, offering cherry cola, vanilla, raspberry and strawberry fragrances. It’s a little sweet on the palate, delivering abundant ripe raspberry, strawberry and chocolate flavors. It’s like the liquid form of fancy chocolates. The acidity is sufficient and the mouthfeel is nice. It finishes with lingering sweet fruit and chocolate flavors.
