2002 Beaulieu - BV Napa Zinfandel
A big rich and juicy wine, a Zin not for the faint of heart but for those who love FLAVOR! Ripe, blackberry and bing cherry aromas leap out of the glass. Full, fleshy flavors show rich fruit extract, soft tannins, and a wonderful purity of fruit, while the alcohol adds a distinctive velvety texture. Some moderate youthful tannins suggest that a year or two in the bottle will do wonders. Drink with all manner of full-flavored, but not too spicy dishes.
