2005 Frank Family Zinfandel
"Frank Family Vineyards' 2005 Napa Valley Zinfandel is dark and rich in color, reminiscent of violets. This classic Zinfandel leads with sweet blackberry jam, white and black pepper and clove spice. Further opulence emerges as layers of black cherry, blueberry and Asian spice are exposed. The palate is big, bold and ripe with juicy brambleberry and warm plum pudding, supported by integrated tannin and spice, giving a full mid palate and setting the stage for the long supple finish." -Winery

Fellow Drync'rWell structured from the syrah and petite syrah blend. Tames the undisciplined zin like a head mistress to a catholic school girl. Drinks like a baby cdp right out of the bottle
fdc1989suprisingly sweet and light without food, and becomes spicier with food. good and fresh. very complex.
Conodelicious! very easy to drink. big fruit... nor sure if it's simple or complex or both.
