External Reviews for Biale Zinfandel Napa Black Chicken
Rich, dense and jammy, with aromas of cherry pie and spice. The ripe, layered blackberry flavors show accents of smoky caramel, sage and licorice. For fans of big wines. Drink now through 2018.
Good dark red. Aromas of blackberry, licorice pastille and orange peel are lifted by a floral topnote. Smooth and fine-grained on entry, then creamy and concentrated in the middle, with good peppery energy to the dark berry and spice flavors. Richer and darker than the 2011 version, delivering much more stuffing at a similar level of alcohol. Finishes with sweet tannins and very good length.
Spicy in black plum and berry fruit, Black Chicken is a consistent blockbuster for Biale, alive and fresh in waves of exotic cinnamon and clove. Built to age 2020–2022, it’ll satisfy in complex black tea and savory toasty oak, an easy wine to love. The grapes are sourced from the winery’s estate sites within the Oak Knoll District, where it’s based.
Plump, juicy, and firm, this is one irresistible bird- a Zinfandel brimming with fruit, spices, and an Oak Knoll District perfume of concentrated blackberry compote, bright raspberries, clove, five spice, black tea, toasted brioche, and notes of caramel and vanilla. Voluptuous, gentle, and yummy as it is, this freshly-bottled wonder has the stuffing for the long haul and is just getting started. The 2012 Black Chicken-if cellared well-will continue to improve for the next 5-8 years and likely well beyond. - WineryWinemaking:The fruit was hand-sorted first in the field then again at the winery. Open-top fermentation and punched down three times per day. Pressed to Burgundian oak-20% new. Aged 14 months.Alcohol:15.8%
