Artezin Zinfandel Mendocino County 2008

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

A fine Zinfandel, rich and briary, with wild forest flavors of black and blue berries. Asian spices, tangerine zest and smoky sandalwood. Full-bodied and dry, it's nice now and for the next few years.

Here's a deeply flavored, lusty young Zin that really shows off the variety's briary personality, even though it hails from three different countries. Very rich in blackberries, mulberries and currants, it's enormously spicy. Thoroughly enjoyable with barbecue and Mexican fare, like beef tacos.

Juicy and lively, with spicy cinnamon and raspberry aromas as well as crisp cherry, anise and loam flavors. Drink now through 2014.

This is a brand from Hess Collection that specializes in Zinfandel. Crafted by Hess' talented winemaker, Randle Johnson, it's quite a good Zin, classic in it's way, briary and brambly and spicy. Drinks deep and long in wild berry, pepper, licorice, Dr. Pepper and smoky flavors, and will be great with a steak.

This is a new brand from Hess, and a very good wine. The winemaker calls it a field blend, meaning it may or may not be Zinfandel. It doesn't taste entirely like Zin. There are blueberries and cherries in there along with the brambly, peppery stuff. The wine is claret-style, meaning it's balanced and harmonious despite 15.5% alcohol.

The perfect wine for your next barbeque or pasta party. Raspberry, pepper and just the right amount of spice.
