Another excellent wine from Hess. Easy to drink. Black fruit with definite notes of black pepper.
External Reviews for Artezin Zinfandel Mendocino County
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, itrsquo;s nice now and for the next few years.
Herersquo;s a deeply flavored, lusty young Zin that really shows off the varietyrsquo;s briary personality, even though it hails from three different countries. Very rich in blackberries, mulberries and currants, itrsquo;s enormously spicy. Thoroughly enjoyable with barbecue and Mexican fare, like beef tacos.
This is a brand from Hess Collection that specializes in Zinfandel. Crafted by Hessrsquo; talented winemaker, Randle Johnson, itrsquo;s quite a good Zin, classic in itrsquo;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.
Juicy and lively, with spicy cinnamon and raspberry aromas as well as crisp cherry, anise and loam flavors. Drink now through 2014.
From the Hess family of wines, a Zinfandel with fruit selected from three of the great Zinfandel appellations; Napa, Mendocino,and Amador. Jammy raspberry fruit and exotic spice, with rich plum, cola, and vanilla elements from barrel aging. Includes a dash of Petite Sirah.
The perfect wine for your next barbeque or pasta party. Raspberry, pepper and just the right amount of spice.
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 doesnrsquo;t taste entirely like Zin. There are blueberries and cherries in there along with the brambly, peppery stuff. The wine is claret-style, meaning itrsquo;s balanced and harmonious despite 15.5% alcohol.
