Martinelli Giuseppe and Luisa Zinfandel Russian River Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Giuseppe and Luisa Zinfandel is bursting with aromas of boysenberry, brambly strawberry, and nectarine fruit. This is a supple Zinfandel with velvety blackberry and flinty plum flavors and a richness that fills your mouth and lingers...." Wine Makers Notes "This wine backs up its reputation for bold and superripe style this vintage with great structure. Boasts bold boysenberry and licorice aromas that follow through to layered, ripe flavors of huckleberry cobbler, cracked pepper and toasty vanilla. Drink now through 2017...92" WS 04/12 "Inky ruby. Explosive aromas of candied black and blue fruits, violet, allspice and anise. Sappy, seamless boysenberry and blueberry flavors show very good depth and surprising vivacity, picking up a smoky nuance with air. Supple and peppery on the finish, leaving behind notes of candied blue fruits...91" IWC 06/12
