Sextant Wines Zinfandel Central Coast 2008
The Sextant Central Coast Zinfandel has an intense garnet hue which is a visual precursor to its aroma and flavor. The enticing nose possesses a sharpness of tart wild strawberries, the sweetness of grape jelly and the complexity of baking spice. Ripe cherry, pomegranate and luscious blueberry flavors fill the mouth. Soft pliable tannins balance the abundance of fruit, completing this wine with a nice long finish. This Zinfandel is bold, unmitigated, and simply audacious.
A wine tasting journey like no other awaits you within 5 minutes of downtown San Luis Obispo. The highly acclaimed Sextant Wines features powerful Zinfandel and Bordeaux style wines. At Sextant Wines we are devoted to expanding the horizons of Paso Robles Wine Country by utilizing the unmatchable terroir with old world varietal selections.

Editorial Reviews for Sextant Wines Zinfandel Central Coast
Fresh and fruity with red plum and pomegranate fruits accented by a touch of pink peppercorn and a hint of vanilla. Soft and round in the mouth with an easy lush feel. It’s very fruity but a bit soft and shows some sighs of over-ripeness to the cherry and pomegranate juice flavors on the palate. There is a nice subtle spice tone that helps to add a bit of detail but this just sort of sits there. 85pts.
