Sunday, January 23, 2022 - Gift of Partial Bottle - 15.0% abv

Received a partial bottle from my Oenophile neighbor. Dark, but clear purple red on the pour, nose of red fruit. Lighter-bodied than I expected, but full-flavored; Blackberry, Boysenberry, and Bramble with spice notes. Ample acidity, nice tart lingering finish. Prime example of a California Zinfandel. Thought I'd died and gone to heaven!!!
