Sausal Winery Zinfandel Alexander Valley Century Vines 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Big black cherry, blackberry fruit greets the nose with nuanced spice notes and accents of chocolate, carob and mint. Medium-full in the mouth, this shows lovely ripe tannins adding structure under the slightly creamy black fruit and anise-toned spice flavors. There’s a nice suggestion of something minty on the palate along with a hint of cocoa. The finish shows a nice pop of fruit with oak playing a decidedly supporting role here. Decent length and a really nice raspberry cream finale show the depth. 89pts

A nice balance and round mouth-feel, showing dark cherry, blackberry, cocoa and coffee notes.

Vintage: 2004 01/29/2009

The 2004 vintage's dark, ruby color is soon followed by a rich, full nose of chocolate and cherry aromas with a subtle yet distinct vanilla spice. The full flavor of the wine comes out as soon as it hits the palate; candied cherry and soft hints
