Kunde Estate Zinfandel Sonoma Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes A tasty choice, this spicy, fruit-laden Sonoma Valley red comes together with its rich layers of bright raspberry fruit and soft accents of anise, caramel, butterscotch, and vanilla. Its lingering finish plays out on the palate, defining the ripe fruit and full mouth flavors.

Intense nose with mineral shadings under Hungarian blackberry candy and dried strawberry notes, a touch of wood/ American oak, a touch of pepper, a little bit of toasty chocolate chip cookie, all meld together offering nice complexity. Big entry with wonderful freshness and a distinct old-vines feel. Depth without great weight and the alcohol is held in balance by the rich fruit flavors. After an initial vanilla note there is plenty of big blackberry boysenberry fruit with a lightly peppery, arugula, watercress kind of spice. Brilliant mouthfeel , very fresh with ripe tannins, great acid balance, just a touch of heat on the long, sweetly fruited finish with a gentle brambly spiciness with a hint of eucalyptus.

Vegetal & tar notes up front with hints of Dark Berry behind in the nose. (The vegeal notes do not distract but rather add character) In the mouth gives rich dark berry and chocolate flavors tobacco & tar supported by a nice blend of astrigency and smooth tannins. Nice Black pepper finish. Very enjoyable wine & price -- one of my favorites of the night at the blind zin tasting.

Warm aromas of oak, dried cherries and hints of earth. Intense berry fruit flavors, full-bodied with toasty wood notes and good complexity. Some ripeness, mild tartness rounded out by smooth tannins and a long pleasant finish.

    A little too peppery for me. Sort of an anti-Pinot Noir.
