The wine has medium acidity. It smells like cranberry, blackberry, tobacco, tea, cherry and stoniness. The body is medium. The wine finishes medium. The wine looks crimson colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. The wine has bright texture.
Pesenti to me seems like a more fruity style, and my taste has been leaning toward the leaner style, but I enjoyed this for what it is. Initially a touch of oak and then the Zin fruit pushed through. Perhaps better as an aperitif.
The best zin I've had in the last several years! I've been consistently disappointed with Turley zins recently, too tannic and austere, not the upfront fruit they once had. But this was different. Very dark, completely opaque. Wonderful pronounced red and black raspberry aromas mixed with toasty oak, a bit of prunes, quite complex. The flavors are bright, sweet, very concentrated and mouth-coating, a bit hot but beautifully balanced. Again, flavors of raspberries and plums, just a hint of raisins and prunes. Very long aftertaste, just kept going. Perfectly ready, wouldn't age this any longer for fear of losing what it now has. Pop any remaining corks! Ric
