Signorello Zinfandel Napa Valley 2008

External Review:

Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Convincingly keyed on precise blackberry fruit right from the start and enriched with a fine complement of carefully fit oak, this very deep working is all Zin in character, and, while solid and sturdy, is always in balance. It is not overly tannic yet has enough finishing grip to suggest that patience will bring better things, and, while it can be successfully partnered with savory pork dishes early on, it promises to become more sophisticated after a few years have passed.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
