Frei Brothers Zinfandel 2009
Dark purple color with a nose of raspberry, seabreeze and a touch of baking powder when first opened. The palate is really sweet with loads of red/black berry and cherry with a similar finish. With air the nose really rounds showing a creamy red berry and spice character with the palate being dominated by black cherry with a long sweet finish.
Peppery nose, strong fruit presence on the palate which balances nicely w/ the spices. Very easy to drink
Warm berry tart on the nose. Spice-laced red berry fruit with bramble and some plummy notes. Flavors of dark red and black berry fruit with baking spices. Finishes on a tart cranberry note.
Dark purple in the glass, nose of cherry and berry fruits. Flavors of the same with some earthiness. Very nice wine to drink.
Eye's: Very dark brick in color with a pinkish ring. Nose: I did not get much of a boquete but I did pick up on some nice violet notes. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with really nice tannins. I'm actually surprised at how much I enjoyed it's fruitiness. I really liked this wine. I believe chilling this wine a little would make it a great companion for asian fair.
