Sterling Vintners Zinfandel Red 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

With a fine balance of forest berries, caramel and chocolate, our Zinfandel exhibits a complex layering of aromas and flavors. Up front, dark blackberry imparts a rich fullness in the mouth, giving way to toasty oak and bright raspberry across the finish. The round tannins and forward fruit in this wine make an excellent match to barbecued meats, such as baby back ribs or juicy hamburgers.

Not a whole lot going on here, just a decent basic zin. Not too complex, fairly light bodied, would go well with medium spiced italian fare.

Smooth with light cherry flavors. Low tanins that makes the wine very simple. Medium body. Pairs well with dark meats - proscuitto or pork belly.

Very dark wine with a strong taste of blackberries.

Very well balanced, just a hint of berry with oak finish. Not sure why the oak comes through? Good balance for inexpensive wine.
