Frank Family Zinfandel Napa Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Connoisseurs' Guide: The preferred of the two deep and concentrated Zinfandels from Frank Family, this one features complex, briary and berryish fruit buttressed by hints of caramel and strawberry preserves. It is full on the palate, and supple to start with a firm underside that will hold it in good stead for years to come as its fruit-driven flavors mature and its tannins soften. This one skirts the edge of being overdone but does not cross the line. (Jan 2011)

Winemaker Notes - Frank Family Vineyards 2008 Napa Valley Zinfandel is dark and rich in color, reminiscent of violets. This classic Zinfandel leads with sweet blackberry jam, white and black pepper and clove spice.
