Bota Box Zinfandel California 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

TASTING NOTES Bota Box Old Vine Zinfandel is dark and jammy with aromas of blueberry, blackberry and dark, cherry. These same fruit flavors carry through to the palate where they mingle with hints of dark chocolate and toasty vanilla. Full bodied with rich tannins, Bota Box Zinfandel is best enjoyed with hearty pasta dishes, pizza, meat stews and barbecue. WINE COMPOSITION Appellation: California Alcohol: 14.0% Total Acidity: .56 g/100ml pH: 3.70

I can almost give it a three. Its nothing special, but I am getting into box wines now because we can't recycle glass, and the amount of wine I drink keeps me going to the dump to regularly. This one is not too bad. I like the Black Box ones a bit better though I think.

We are big Bota fans. Old Vine Zin is our favorite of the lot. It is an easy red wine with dinner wine. I highly recommend as a good economical buy.

This is an excellent affordable Zin. Very smooth, yet flavorful. Better than many more expensive Zins.
