The nose showed beautifully fresh and vibrant fruits, with crushed strawberry and blackberry up front, followed by sweet exotic spice, which was somehow floral, then dark chocolate and a slight lactic note. On the palate, it was vibrant, carrying it's 15.9% alcohol effortlessly, showing juicy textures with spiced black cherry, currants, cinnamon and clove. It finished fresh with a coating of wild berries, spice and cocoa, which lasted long. I kept expecting heat to show, yet there was none in sight.
The nose was intense and constantly evolving with ripe yet fresh fruits, showing stemmed strawberry and cherry, sweet floral tones, exotic spice and minerals. On the palate, it was fresh yet expanded to cover all the senses in spirited ripe cherry, plum and dark chocolate. Juicy, ripe, spiced red fruits lingered on the finish. This wine was incredible and a new experience in Zinfandel for me.
B-day Bash - Carlisle, BDX, Nemo and more (Danny Brown - Queens): Brilliant. I insisted we try this before the cabs. Some thought i was nuts :) but - this wine is elegant and light. Zinberry notes - similar to that acidic red fruit prickle many italian wines exhibit on the nose. floral, lilacs, some soy with time. red cherry and plums in the middle, very refreshing. 15.5 alc? absolutely balanced wine. a pleasure to drink - thanks Mike O.!
