Carol Shelton Zinfandel Karma Bastoni Vineyard Sonoma 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Creamy white chocolate and raspberry/cherry fruit lends this a softness on the nose with hint of wood spice framing the somewhat over-ripe fruit. Rich and powerful and ever so chewy on the palate with nice freshness to the coffee and herb tinged strawberry and black cherry preserves fruit. There’s lots of soil driven character on the palate with ripe tannins contributing some power to the briar wood, cocoa and wood spice flavors on the long, palate staining finish. 91pts
