2007 HRW (Hendry Winery) ZINFANDEL (Napa Valley, Cal.)

This second label Zin is a solid, value-priced every-night style of red from this reputable Napa Valley winery.

Dark-ish black ruby. Extroverted nose of brambly/cedary blackberry juice. Soft, fleshy, and loose-limbed in the mouth, with lots of straightforward Zin fruit, lots of balsa/cedar notes, and a good bit of (pleasant) heat in the fairly long finish (notwithstanding that it has a relatively low stated alcohol content of 13.8%). 87. Drink over the next 6-12 months. Was $15 at Spec's on Smith.
