Spicy plum and blackberry aromas on the nose
Full bodied and richly textured on the palate
Rich, layered finish of spicy berries and currants
This wine is remarkably good every year, and the 2009 has it all. It combines richness and ripe fruit with a spicy character that's neither heavy or too sweet. For Zinfandel fans, here's a benchmark wine priced at $22 or so. A classic food pairing is barbecue, but don't be afraid to serve this with a variety of dishes. Raise a glass!
