Here’s a fun wine that will tickle your Zin tooth and then some. It’s fantastically ripe and rich in blackberry, raspberry and cherry jam, sprinkled with anisette and drizzled with cocoa dust and vanilla extract. Although it’s dry, the high alcohol creates a not unpleasant sensation of glyceriney sweetness. Ready now.
This is a dense, chewy Zin with lush berry flavors. It has notes of blackberry juice and tar, with hints of tobacco and vanilla on the back palate. Made from old vines and blended with 6% Barbera and 4% Alicante Bouschet.
A delightfully spicy, rich Zinfandel, packed with fruity flavors ranging from blackberries and cola through chocolate to raisins. The alcohol is high, and the wine is a bit hot, but that’s part of its personality.
This rustic Barbera tastes of blackberry. It’s medium bodied with just-right acidity and tannins that are well-integrated and smooth. The finish gets a little bit meaty, which will work fine alongside meaty, smoky foods.
Made using 50% Barbera and 50% Alicante Bouschet, this wine is fragrant and full-bodied, with notes of toasty oak and leather. The blend spent more than a year in new French oak, and it shows, both in terms of taste and structure. Should be an interesting wine over time.
