Editorial Reviews for Bonny Doon Vineyard Zinfandel California Cardinal Zin
A touch stewy on the nose with slow to open notes of macerated cherry with hints of cocoa, green tobacco, pipe tobacco, coconut and eucalyptus. Supple in the mouth with good acids and slightly chewy tannins that are well integrated in the dark wild plum fruits. The back end shows a bit more spicy and wood tones with a touch of woody astringency that adds to the red currant fruit tones on the final. A well rounded and well behaved Zin. 86pts
Simple red and black fruits, very jammy, with a sweet finish. None of the spice characteristic of the variety.
Decent zin, not good enough for the price point though.
Easy to drink with a good combination of flavors.
delicious gentle aroma. tastes of raspberry or cranberry and after a glass it had a distict pomagranate taste. was that just me? (new to wine tasting)
A really good Zin, especially for the price. I confess, I bought the first bottle on a whim because I loved the label design, but it has become a favorite. Very good zin for the budget-minded.
I like the spices and black pepper taste.
