This classic "field blend" of old-vine Zinfandel, Petite sirah and Carignane continues to presents us with a rich, yet quaffable wine. The 2010 Zinfandel welcomes you with enticing aromas of cinnamon and clove which underscore layers of brambly fruit and dried cranberries. Luscious flavors of cherry and boysenberry–laced with hints of earth and spice–delight your palate. The resolved tannins and plush texture are balanced by a bright acidity. However, the beauty of this wine is its drinkability and with an alcohol of less than 14% you are assured a perfect partner for your backyard get-togethers.
At first, this wine's dried fruit flavors of figs and dates seem to place it in the Porty side of zinfandel, but there's a liveliness and a zesty minerality that keeps it grounded and firm. Think granite and pomegranate and you'll be close to the flavors, their spicy character peppering the smooth, supple texture. Best Buy.
