Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Zinfandel from Carol Shelton opens with a blueberry, vanilla and oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a Bing cherry with notes of oak, red plum and blueberry. The finish is dry, silky and subtle. Our mini-tasting group thought this Zin was food friendly and would pair well with a pan-fried pork chop. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Nice dark-red in color, big blueberry-blackberry fruit, spicy-chocolatey oak, nicely focused acidity enhances mineral flavors, elegantly structured tannins for aging, super plush long finish!
