Artezin Zinfandel 2019, California 

Zinfandel from USA
Review Date : 04-Apr-2022
Deep ruby-red, lighter on edge. The nose is full and welcoming, with ripe black raspberries, cherries, boysenberries lifted by pepper, followed by cinnamon buns. Full-bodied, nuances of cherries, black raspberries and boysenberries have good depth, unfolding pepper, cinnamon buns and salted caramel element. The fruit has excellent freshness and depth, supported by balanced acidity; supple, smooth tannin provides structure and allows the delicious fruit and spice to shine. Match with braised short ribs and char siu over the next 5-7 years. A blend of 82% Zinfandel, 14% Petite Sirah, 4% Carignan, fermented to 14.8% alc, aged 10 months in 1 to 2-year-old French oak barrels. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Apr 2022 RRP $35
