Three Wines Co. Contra Costa County Zinfandel Evangelho Vineyard 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Intense and liquory on the nose with a deep, rich root vegetal underlay to the oak, framed by slightly jammy black cherry and wild blackberry fruit on the nose. This is intense and plush in the mouth. A very large wine that is seamless, dense but neither particularly chewy nor opaque. The fruit is supported by some serious tannins but it’s all in balance. Lovely boysenberry tones on the palate lead to a slightly plummier profile with a touch of black currant that leads to the long, jammy black currant and wood spice finish. A well-behaved bruiser of a wine. Not for everyone but very good for its type. 92pts

Strong, would definitely overpower any food paired with it. Not very hot. Surprisingly the bouquet is not very strong, but it's still a bit woody.
