Robert Biale Vineyards Black Chicken Zinfandel

Wine Details





Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) The '12 vintage in Napa is one of the best, and Biale took full advantage. Ripe and concentrated fruit flavors of mixed berry compote take center stage. Extra layers of brown baking spices, herbs and ZIn's classic black pepper add to this full-bodied and well-balanced juicy red.

    Smooth - fruit forward but bold. Slight pepper in the front end. Deep purple - smooth tannins. Full body. Need to aerate or decant.
