Dark ruby center with a violet rim. Wonderful nose of red-fruit with a touch of vanilla bean. The palate is polished and complete with apricot, red fruits, and zinfandel spice. Structurally, there is perfectly balanced acidity in this medium-bodied wine, and the spherical mouthfeel is truly impressive. The wife wanted a lighter styled zinfandel to pair with pizza margherita, and this absolutely fit the bill. Fred's wines always provide zen-like balance as well as pure fruit intensity. Aging beautifully, as a balanced wine should.
Blood red center with slightly orange rim. The nose is hauntingly beautiful with lovely red fruits, cherry and pomegranate, coupled with a charry note. The palate was equally impressive with red cherry, pomegranate, tart cranberry, tea, ash, and mineral flavors. The bright acidity matches the fruit perfectly in this light-bodied wine, and the mineral-laden finish is quite long. Overall, this wine had a terrific, pure nose with deep, but not heavy, flavors. Wesmar continues to be under appreciated, and every time I drink a bottle, I wonder why I don't own more.
One of the top 5 reds in Rully made by one of the up and coming young winemakers in the area. Purple center with a violet rim. The pure nose is unadulterated with red-fruit and a smokey, barrel char note. On the palate, the fruit is a combination of cherry and tart cranberry coupled with char notes and minerals on the finish. Structurally, this wine is medium-bodied with complimentary acidity and a tart finish with good length. Overall, this made an impression like a top quality Beaujoulais. The fruit is pure and honest with good acidity to match with food.
