Wine Review: This pitch black colored Zinfandel opens with blackberry and anise bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a ripe black raspberry with notes of acai and minerality. I also detected hints old oak, olive and boysenberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins and fruit flavors are nicely prolonged. This Zin is food friendly and would pair well with slow-cooked beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2012 Belloni Vineyard Zinfandel displays dried flowers and perfume with nice spice and incredible fruit. It has good weight and lively acid.
