Cakebread Zinfandel Howell Mountain 2012

Member Review by Parrothead2009:

My wife and I opened up this bottle last night for my birthday. It was smooth, full bodied, peppery on the center of the tongue, with moderate complexity. Good legs, rich bouquet of ripe currants. The bottle had not been stored under optimal conditions, but was still in good form. The color was dark and the finish was overall smooth. We found it to be a great complimentary wine to our spaghetti dinner. Definitely ready to drink now. I wouldn't wait much longer.
