A terrific value Zinfandel. Not a monster, but balanced, deep, fruity, and fresh. A utility infielder comfortable in many contexts and with a wide variety of meals.
Dark ruby with a violet tinge. Bright, lightly-spiced nose of black cherry and blackberry, along with a whiff of fruitcake and warm sandstoney gravel. Nicely-concentrated, with full body and loads of clean, deep fruit in the fore-palate, with sweet dried cherry and sandstone in the long, lightly tannic finish. Lacking that extra depth and complexity to catapult it into the elites, it's still and very nice B+. Was $10.99 at Total Wine in Fairfax, VA.
