Once again, my theory that if you are going to drink value wines, drink Zinfandel, has been vindicated. The truth of the matter, is that more often than not, the difference between a $10 zin, and a $20 zin is not that great. Zin is a thin skinned grape that gives us it's all, the winemaker just has to make sure he doesn't screw up. We have plenty of color here for a wine that is not quite medium bodied. The nose is brambly, roasted dark fruit. The fruit wants to melt in your mouth with blueberry and cranberry. Not really very acidic. Minimal tannins. Almost reminds me of rhubarb. Doesn't have, and doesn't need a lot of oak. The finish is dry, maybe a little short, but still fruity.
