Martinelli Zinfandel Russian River Valley Jackass Vineyard 2008

Member Review by jkagel:

I've been a big fan of Martinelli for several years and was waiting for an opportunity to give this a try. We popped it open last weekend and unfortunately I was greatly disappointed. Appearance was fine but nose was not appealing (had a scent of damp clothing that has been left in the dryer too long). Flavors of licorice and jam. Very heavy in the mouth and the acidity (what little there was) was not in balance with the rest of the wine. Being such a big fan of G&L and their other Zins I was quite surprised. We let it stand hoping it would open up and evolve but no luck. Maybe it was just a bad bottle.
