Wine Review: V Twin is a player in the Zinfandel market place. This is the third Zin out of 3 we have tried in the last 2 years that we have recommended. This dark ruby wine opens with a mild black current bouquet with a touch of wood and vanilla. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is smooth as silk, well balanced, quite tasty, and has a pleasant blend of black cherry and spice flavors. The finish is dry and nicely extended. The panel felt this wine would pair nicely with pork tenderloin with a brown sage sauce or squab. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This Zinfandel is going to rock your world with its jammy aromas and a bagger-full of flavors. This is a serious Zin with aromas of strawberry, black cherry, spices and black peppery notes. The soft mouthfeel bursts with notes of raspberry, plums, caramel and earthy undertones. Barrel aging provides hints of oak and vanilla to the wine - leaving a soft, smooth & lingering finish. The Zin’s structure of tannin and fruit remains well-balanced & smooth thruout.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Zinfandel.
