(From 2011 Vintage) Old Vine Zinfandel has a gnarly core of rich, dark berry flavors with layers of spice, plum, pepper and vanilla balanced by light hint of toasted oak.
Fruity berry aromas. Medium body and finish. Light tannins , berry and spice notes. Serviceable drinking wine.
smell: cherry, taste: bold, juicy, berry, strong fruit, fruit forward. meat brings out the tannin at the end
weak zin. ok spice fuller finish than anything. ate with ribeye, not a bad pair but unhappy as a zin.
good fruit characters (cherry) on the nose and palate, medium- tannins and acidity
surprisingly good, strong, yet complex, more tannin than fruit
nose. spicy, toasted oak. dark fruit. taste. dark, earthy.
has an aftertaste and must breath for a while
