Graziano Zinfandel Redwood Valley Kazmet Vineyard wine review by (PB)
This was on sale from $20 to $14 and for a single vineyard Zin (40 year old vines no less) that is a GREAT price if the wine pans out. It presents with a cherry hue and a nice zesty ripe blackberry with sweet backbone and classic Zin nose. So far so good--
Palate: Light cinnamon palate with chewy tannins and is a bit harsh on opening. Ripe berries give nice presence.
This wine needs to be decanted. A day later this wine was much better and much better balanced. I even tried to obtain more but the store only had 14 bottles total. This is not a great single vineyard Zin but then I didn't pay a great single vineyard Zin price so raise a glass!
