Smoking Loon California Old Vine Zinfandel 2016

Zinfandel from USA
Review Date : 31-Jul-2018
Very full, dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour. The nose is well-proportioned with good depth and intensity of ripe blackberry and blueberry fruit aromas along with spice notes, a little black pepper and some nutty nuances. The aromatics have good penetration. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a rich and firmly packed core of sweetly ripe blackberry and blueberry fruit along with dark raspberries. The flavours are mouthfilling, and the palate is underlined by light, supple tannin grip. The wine is carried by the textures to a moderately long-lingering finish. This is an up-front, sweetly rich Zinfandel with ripe blackberry, blueberry and raspberry fruit on a soft, supple palate. Match with barbecued, grilled and roasted red meats over the next 3+ years. California fruit, a blend of 80% Zinfandel, 11% Petite Sirah, 5% Alicante Bouchet, and 2% each Merlot and Barbera, fermented to 14.0% alc. 17.5/20 Aug 2018 RRP $22.00
