Fetzer Zinfandel California Ricetti 1982

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smoky on the nose with a nice base of black fruit, spicy and a touch of truffle, peppery with a bit of oak still obvious. Smooth and polished in the mouth with a nice core of fading red fruit framed with wood spice and sweet licorice tones. A bit of vanilla and some noticeable astringent tannins still linger on the palate which is followed by a brief pop of lovely black cherry fruit on the moderately long finish . Still intact, and sweetly fruited, if not terribly varietal. 85pts
