The Hess Collection Zinfandel Artezin Mendocino County 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red and purple in hue, this wine has aromas of ripe red fruit, with hints of sage, cinnamon and pepper. The fruit flavors flesh out on the palate, dominated by raspberry, boysenberry and red cherry, complemented by hints of nutmeg, rosemary and spice, for a classic varietal character. Soft, supple tannins create a firm, yet lush mouthfeel. With its bright fruit-forward flavor profile, this wine is created for immediate enjoyment.

Subtle red fruit, slightly tart and earthy. Strong cherry, vanilla and light spices fall off the tongue as slight dryness creeps in on the finish. It is not all that acidic, and is somewhat flabby. Easy to drink but not wholly indicative of a typical Zin. The vanilla and cherry come to predominate on the finish. Id say its more a $12 bottle than $15.

Jammy, spicy, with typical cherry. Short, not overpowering. Great everyday wine.

The perfect wine for your next barbeque or pasta party. Raspberry, pepper and just the right amount of spice.
