Tamás Estates Zinfandel Livermore Valley 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lovely nose shows gentle layers of blackberries, strawberry and brambly spice. Smooth and a touch sweet in the mouth, this delivers a nicely vanilla-framed core of rather black cherry fruit, with accent notes of wood spice and pepper adding complexity. There’s a little meatiness to the black spice on the back end, along with a hint of some stemmy herbs that turn into something more licorice and medicinal toned on the slightly sweet finish. Pretty good stuff with good varietal character. 85pts

Tasting Notes:

At Tamás Estates we've made it our passion to fashion California wines in a style honoring their varietal heritage. Our Zinfandel has flavors of raspberry, strawberry jam, cherry and vanilla. With a rich mouthfeel, integrated oak and a long fruity finish, this wine compliments a variety of meat selections and spicy foods. Hop on the bus for a multinational wine tour experience and stamp your passport for world taste.
