Cartlidge & Browne Zinfandel California 2010
This approachable, fruit-forward Zinfandel is a sure crowd-pleaser. Having just a touch of Petite Sirah (5%) give this Zin a little more structure. The wine was aged in a 50% split of French and American Oak for a year, with about 30% of that new. This allows the Zin to practically burst with aromas of ripe black cherry, a little blueberry and brown sugar. Rich berry and soft chocolate linger long on the palate, mingling with soft tannins and spice.
"Despite the enormous influence of California's wineries, too few specialize in premium wines at value prices. One that does is Cartlidge and Browne. Avoiding extra oak and other types of manipulation used by some vintners, Cartlidge & Browne produces fruity, pure, and vibrant wines that reflect varietals' personalities.
Not bad. Earthy and cherry aromas. Raspberry, cherry, and white pepper flavors with a plummy midpalate. Very smooth Zin.
A simple wine past its prime, rating 85
