Wine Review: This very dark red colored Zinfandel from Three is a crowd pleaser. It opens with a very brambly black raspberry bouquet with notes of black plum. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, acidic, juicy and very fruit forward. The flavor profile is a stewed red plum and strawberry blend with hints of ripe strawberry. The finish is dry and its flavors and fine tannins drift away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Zin with lobster mac n’ cheese or tequila lime turkey chili. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The Evangelho vineyard is still being dry-farmed and is growing on its own roots. There is a concentration of ripe blackberries and spice with a minerality (dusty berry) sneaking through. The Petite Sirah adds structure, color, black fruit, and a spicy white pepper character. The Mataro adds complex fruit, dried herb flavors, and a fleshy mouth feel. With such a low pH and big fruit flavors, don’t hesitate to age this wine for 5-7 years.
