Saturated medium ruby. Roasted, jammy aromas of black raspberry, dark chocolate and clove, lifted by a note of orange peel. Like a zin essence in the mouth: supersweet, thick and large-scaled, with superb depth of fruit and not at all porty. Finishes thick, lush and ripely tannic. (ST)
Readers looking for big, briery, dense, high alcohol Zinfandels will enjoy this offerings made by winemaker Bob Cabral. The 2000 Zinfandel Bacigalupi (16.7% alcohol) is powerful. It does not reveal the striking aromatics of the Forchini South Knoll, but offers dense, earthy, black fruit, and pepper characteristics strung together with high acids. It should drink well for 5-7 years. (RP)
High-toned black cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and pomegranate fold in with a dash of tar, in this spicy, earthy offering. Balanced, even with a stated 16.7 percent alcohol. (JL)
