Delicato Twisted Vine Zinfandel 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Assertively oaky with dark bittersweet chocolate and mocha notes paired with slightly jammy wild blackberry fruit. This is dark, brooding and aggressively scented with some beefy, bloody undertones and a vaguely floral top note. Big but not hugely varietal. Broad, flush and wide open in the mouth, with superbly managed tannins and finely integrated acidity. This is endowed with almost syrupy black berry and black cherry flavors, but the wine remains vibrant and relatively lightweight in the mouth. Super fresh and well balanced. The oak pops a bit on the finish, with black cherry fruit edged with cola and spice notes. Really is verging on silky; wonderfully managed wine. 91pts

Twisted 2009 Old Vine Zinfandel is medium-bodied with aromas of wild blackberry, plum and a hint of spice. Concentrated ripe stone fruit, dark berry flavors and toasted oak carry through to the palate while nicely balanced acidity and plush tannins lead to a lingering finish.Enjoy Twisted Old Vine Zinfandel with braised short ribs, pulled pork sliders, BBQ or pizza.
