great body, sweet red fruits, spices, good finish
A beautiful ruby red color, the nose is full of fruit. Immediately I noticed the smell of ripe cherries and raspberry jam with just a hint of smokiness. The taste was much of the same though the flavor of plum came through along with a bit of oak. Not a very dry red but it had a nice finish and it was actually quite refreshing.
This wine is wonderful. It is a nice mature and not to acidic red zin. Very nice fruity flavor without being too dry or too sweet. I have been recently reacquainting myself with the Red Zinfandel varieties and have grown to love two....this and Coppola's director's cut. I definitely recommend with a good rich dinner and lots of friends.
I liked it.
