Wine Review: This bright red colored Zinfandel is a reasonably priced good value Zin. It opens with black cherry and red currant bouquet with hints of black licorice and twig. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and juicy. The flavor profile is a ripe red currant and boysenberry blend with notes of cedar and plum. I also detect some old oak and a touch of strawberry licorice and black pepper. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors linger for a while after the wine is gone. This Zin would be perfect with a tangy pulled pork sandwich. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: First notice the opulent color of this wine. Beautifully balanced with minty cloves and minerals that are complimented by spice and a hint of smokiness on the long finish.
