Four Vines Old Vine Cuvee Zinfandel 2005 wine review by (PB)


I grabbed this for just under $10 because I wanted a Zin that I hadn't tried and another one of the Four Vines Zins that I had, had was pretty tasty.

It is a purple cherry hue with a black berry bouquet. A friend who doesn't exactly have a very discriminating palate even said, "Wow!" just upon smelling this wine. Yes it is a fruit bomb but a well made one and rather classic example of good though inexpensive Zinfandel.

In the mouth it is fruit filled, robust full of dark fruit and spicy cinnamon with decent structure. As it warmed up a bit--it was in a refrigerator before we drank it, raspberry and blueberry notes emerge with some milk chocolate. Hey for the price this is a good value and good Zin! So raise a glass!
