Pozzan "Back Barn" Zinfandel 2008 wine review by (PB)


Lighter garnet hue with a bouquet of simple blackberry fruit with a touch of milk chocolate behind it.

Palate--Thin texture with harsh acid but good zinfandel berry flavors and smoke. A little tannic chew but varietal Zinfandel presence. Finishes with a lingering finish of bitter berry and smoke.

This says "Oakville Cuvee" on the label stating it is a single vineyard Napa Zin.

This is a fine example of a $10 Zinfandel that sells for $22. You read that right. This isn't a bad wine but does not have the complexity or character ofa single vineyard Zin and is consequently overpriced by 100%.

For the money I would pass on this and leave it in the "back barn." Raise a glass of a single vineyard Rosenblum Zin for $22!
