Sextant Wines Zinfandel Central Coast 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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.

Loaded with bright, distinctive, and vibrant fruit- this is truly my favorite everyday Zinfandel. Not your typical jammy in your face bold zin, but an approachable delight! Love that there is Syrah and Mourvedre in this blend.

    This is for the 2011 which is not already on here. I like this one a lot. Balanced, full.
