(From 2011 Vintage) The deep purple-red hued Mettler 2011 Old Vine Zinfandel is a wine that is full of personality and shows it off with an expressive array of bold aromas and flavors. Enticing aromas of sweet brambly berries, candy apple and mocha delight the senses. The flavors are bright and complex with orange-scented dark chocolate, sweet black cherry and jammy red berries are balanced by notes of warm spices and oak. The velvety, yet firmly structured tannins are balanced by a pleasing thread of acidity, and the flavors are kept bright and juicy on the long, tasty finish. This wine packs a lot of flavor, yet manages to hold a measure of finesse and grace. A variety of cuisines, from hearty stews to grilled favorites, will stand up nicely to this tasty Zinfandel.
