Michael David Lust Zinfandel 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine stood out as being the most structured Zinfandel while still displaying a ton of the ripe berry and spice characters we all expect from a Zinfandel. Without hesitation this lot was put into new American oak barrels purchased especially for this program. After being aged 21 months we blended with a little bit of Petite Sirah to increase the already great depth, color, and tannin structure. Ready to drink now, but with the hefty amount of tannin this wine could easily be set down for a few years. This Zinfandel has a soft texture and decadent mouthfeel, and the flavors are of creme de cassis, caramel cream, melted milk chocolate, tangerine zest, and cinnamon-spiced gingerbread.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
