Old Zinfandel Tasted April 2013

4. Fetzer Zinfandel California Ricetti (1983)

« Prev Next » 4 of 11
Not particularly aromatic at first though a little spicy and oaky. A bit of air lends this focus and brings out lots of smoke and briar pipe aromas. Smooth with richness still buffering the tannins and acids, which are significant. Lots of raspberry fruit and tobacco early on the palate is followed by a clean, fresh and bracing finish. This is holding together nicely, showing some peppery spice, a cast of red fruit, and a light oak spice, whiskey barrel tone on the fairly long acid driven finish. 87pts
