Claudia Springs Zinfandel Ricetti Vineyard California Wine 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fairly intense aromas balance notes of forest floor, sweet black raspberry and black cherry fruit and gentle tones of wood spice. Really excellent balance on entry. This is a big wine, no doubt about it, but the balance really makes this deceivingly smooth and easy to drink. The mid-palate is dominated by classic brambly blackberry fruit with hints of pie tobacco, vanilla and nutmeg, and maybe even a hint of white pepper. The finish is clear and crisp with a long, fresh, black raspberry tone. Very refreshing and delicious. 91pts
