External Reviews for Terra d'Oro Shr Zinfandel
A fine value is the 1999 Zinfandel Terra d'Oro. This Zinfandel fruit bomb reveals ripe blackberry and cherry fruit intermixed with smoke, earth, licorice, and tar. Chewy, full-bodied, opulently-textured, and pure, with a whopping 15.5% alcohol, this well-balanced effort will drink well for 5-6 years.
You'll find some raisiny flavors that result in an overcooked aroma and flavor, as well as some rough tannins. It's a rustic Zin whose edges will be rounded out with rich cheeses or meats.
This Zin, from the superior '97 vintage, is solidly build with smoke and black raspberry nuances, with toasty oak notes in the background.
