Beaver Creek Vineyards Lake County Zinfandel 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Pure chocolate on the nose, with air this shows some weedy herb and spice tones, but it has an overwhelmingly chocolatey nose that recalls port. Fresh on entry with a hint of residual sugar that gives this an initial softness, though on the mid-palate it shows the porty character it displays on the nose. There’s plenty of spice here and the wine does feel pretty good considering its size, but the flavors lack freshness and definition. The finish is a bit hot and a bit lean with porty flavors. Obviously if you like this porty style, you’re gonna love this. 84pts
