T-Vine Cellars Zinfandel Napa Valley Frediani Vineyard 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dusty, tight and mineraly on the nose with restrained crushed berry fruit topped with lovely green floral notes and a slightly medicinal edge. This is a big, medicinal and coffee-toned wine with a smooth, dark and powerful palate impression that shows obvious sweetness. There’s lots of plum and blackberry fruit, turning to blueberry pie filling on the sweet finish. There’s a lot of RS here, with a short finish where tannins knock out the sweetness but don’t allow the fruit to pop. This is a bit viscous and not my style at all. 84 points

T-Vine Cellars:
We are a very small winery located off the beaten path in Calistoga, behind the owner - winemaker's home. There are just 3 people that work at T-Vine. We market, sell and deliver all of our own wine in California.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
