Saucelito Canyon Zinfandel Late Harvest Estate Arroyo Grande Valley 2010

Member Review by Zuiko:

This wine is not as nice as previous vintages I have had. It has plum, cinnamon and some over ripe character in the nose. It is rich and nicely sweet and has a long finish. An enjoyable dessert wine. My rating --90 Improves with air --- 93

Saucelito Canyon Vineyards:
We try and pick some fruit that’s in the brighter flavors of strawberry and raspberry. That develops at around 21 to 22.5 Brix," Bill said. "Then later we’ll pick some at 23 to 24 Brix. That’s the more blackberry, black cherry flavors. And then we’ll pick the rest at 26 to 27 to get the prune and plum flavors that are often associated with Zinfandel. So we get this whole different layering of flavors so that the wine has a lot of complexity
