Niebaum-Copolla Diamond Series Red Label Zinfandel 2004 wine review by (PB)

This Zin is a classic presentation of the varietal. It is rich and deep purple in the glass with a lush blackberry bouquet. In the mouth this wine is gushing with fruit of ripe blackberries with a zippy touch of spice, baked bread,and chocolate.

This wine is well made with solid tannic structure finishing with some smoke and more dark fruit.

As it breathes, there is more of the peppery suggestion you expect with a Zinfandel and just more of what’s above. At $14, this is worth picking up especially if you wonder what Zinfandel should taste like. This is a classic, and value presentation. Raise a glass.
