Bella Alexander Valley Two Patch Zinfandel 2008

Member Review by winejaunt:

This wine is a beautiful ruby color - a great purple as your swirl it around. The red fruit on the nose is backed up by a great fruit (raspberry, especially) when drinking. You'll like this if you like light, fruity wines. The alcohol is 14.4%, but it's hard to notice. Tannin levels seem low to me, leaving something to be desired for someone who is looking for a more structured, bigger red. It is a summer day in Chicago in the middle of a heat wave - I was hesitant to open up a red this evening, but this one seems to be working out well enough.
