1997 Alderbrook Zinfandel
Full bodied and succulent, this Zinfandel is consistent from the aromatic nose through to the smooth finish. Blackberry, raspberry, and pepper flavors are outlined with spicy oak and supported by firm tannins. This full-bodied Zinfandel pairs well with spicy Italian foods, grilled and roasted meats, hearty stews, tomato based dishes, and robust cheeses.
