Harding Estates Napa Zinfandel 2005 wine review by (PB)
real time review:
Black cherry hue with light cocoa and black cherries fighting through volatile alcohol.
Palate--zesty flavors of ripe fruit of plum and black cherry, milk chocolate, and a pronounced smokey finish carried on a watery textured foundation.
Tasted a little too warm but not enough to negate review. I paid $10 for this on sale from $15. It is a typical $10 Zin; if I paid $15 for it I would be annoyed. On further reflection and time to breath, it is a pretty decent example of a Zin at this price point. Some spice, good fruit, and an easy drinking pizza/spaghetti wine.
For the price, try Cline 's red label zin for around $9. Raise a glass.
