Ghost Pines Winemakers' Blend Zinfandel California 2011
Ghost Pines 2011 Zinfandel blends fruit from Sonoma and San Joaquin counties to accentuate the best of what each county has to offer. This blend opens up with complex aromas of macaroon fresh out of the oven with a coconut cream pie chaser, Szechuan peppercorns in hot oil and berry pie that's interlaced throughout those spices. In the mouth it becomes more about the cardamom. Like that background note in a great cinnamon roll or the undefinable essence of a fine cup of tea, there's a real intrigue to the spice in this wine that leaves a lingering finish.
