37th Annual Zinfandel Retrospective (R&D's): Deep garnet color with notes of cherry, dusty earth, pomegranate and raspberry. Flavors of dark and red fruit with hints of pepper, boysenberry and cherry. Balanced, with a long finish. 92+ pts.
Had a magnum with 6 people and some spaghetti with tomato sauce, didn't give it much time to open up. Great balance, long lasting fruit, no complaints. This wine made me look good with other zin lovers.
Using the tasting note assistant: The wine looks Garnet colored. It smells like Red Currant, and Stoniness. It tastes like Strawberry, Red Currant, Stoniness, and Vanilla. The body is Medium. The wine has Satin-like texture. The wine finishes Medium.
Big, rich and racy, this is an interesting and complex wine that has active tannins, dark mixed berries and a finish that goes on and on. This Zin never disappoints and one of the best kept secrets in the Napa Valley.
