Galleano Winery Zinfandel Pioneer's Legendary 2010

Member Review by EMark:

When I pulled the cork I was a bit surprised at how darkly it was stained at the bottom. On pouring I was surprised that the wine was not as dark as I expected. Color, notwithstanding, the proof is on the tongue. A very enjoyable and drinkable wine. Not terribly fruit forward, although there is certainly the blackberry hit that I get with a lot of Zins. Good acid tartness. That with some very pleasant, non-intrusive tannin suggests reasonable aging potential for this one. The best Galleano wine that I've had in my recent survey. US$17.50 at the WInery in Mira Loma.
