Foxglove Zinfandel Paso Robles 2007
I really wanted to love this wine since the price is so remarkably low and I've always greatly admired the Foxglove Chardonnays for their excellence and price/performance ratio. However, this Zinfandel is just not made in a style I enjoy. Very earthy nose of prunes, sweet berries, and chocolate. Sweet-feeling and (to my taste) overly heavy and unstructured in the mouth, very like the late-picked Zins I used to struggle with from Ridge. The texture and sweetness also make it, for me, a troublesome food wine. I purchased a case of this wine before tasting it based on super reviews from Parker and others - oops! A preference for this sweeter, heavier style is a matter of taste, and I'm sure many others will have a better feeling about the wine than I do.
My family enjoyed a bottle of this at Thanksgiving dinner and it was a crowd-pleaser. I would definitely go back for more if I was looking to buy Zinfandel.
had this tonight at a wine bar.... really liked it for the value.... let it breathe a little and really flow over the backside of your palate...yum.

External Reviews for Foxglove Zinfandel Paso Robles
The outstanding 2007 Zinfandel (86% Zinfandel and 14% Petite Sirah) is another winner and phenomenal bargain. This is classic Zinfandel with loads of berry fruit, pepper, earth, and roasted Provencal herbs. The wine is pure, full-bodied, ripe, with not a hard edge to be found. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
The 2009 Zinfandel includes 6% Petite Sirah. A delicious, classic Zinfandel, it offers up peppery, briery, wild berry fruit intermixed with damp earth and spice characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, delicious, and soft with enough acidity for cleanliness and delineation, it should be drunk over the next 2-3 years.
