Editorial Reviews for Chatom Vineyards Zinfandel Calaveras County
Decidedly plummy and black cherry-toned nose with a hint of toffee, which offers up a fleshy, meaty note with plenty of wood spice notes accenting the earth bass notes. Full and rich, even slightly chewy on entry with noticeable tannins and good acidity supporting slightly minty, baked red cherry fruit. There is a touch of a medicinal, liquory quality to the mid-palate that becomes more assertive on the long, if slightly hot, finish. This really is well balanced, if seemingly a bit rustic, and develops some attractive complexity, in particular a pronounced licorice streak. 87pts

You are introduced to aromas of jammy baked blackberries along with hints of anise. The robust flavors of ripe plums, a pepper medley, and vanilla lead you to a finish of rich, dark chocolate. - Winery ** Only 6 in Stock **
