Old Zinfandel Tasted April 2013

1. David Bruce Zinfandel Mendocino (1981)

Next » 1 of 11
Old and dusty on the nose; not a lot of fruit left here. Spicy with a caramel base, some black pepper, and a hint of black fruit. Smooth with a hint of sweetness on entry and a nice touch of spicy raspberry fruit on the palate. High acid and smoothly textured though not much fruit left and dusty, mineral flavors on the modest finish. Drinkable and pleasant though shadow of what it must have once been. 78pts
