Wine Review: The 2014 Bruce Patch "Harris Kratka" Zinfandel is a nice example of a California zin. This Alexander Valley Zin is full bodied and has a deep ruby color with purple on the edges. The bouquet is deceptively inviting with a nice fruity black raspberry and plum that included leather, herbs and black pepper, but don't be deceived this is a big Zin! On the palate, this Zin is intense, yet also smooth, fruity and rustic. Not for the faint of heart, but will nicely satisfying for Zin lovers. Chewy with blackberry jam, light plum, milk chocolate, oak, and herb flavors that are balanced by minerality and acidity. It closes with a nice dry extended savory finish. I would pair this Zin with a Kona coffee encrusted steak with potatoes au gratin. - Joe
