Deep ruby. Crushed black fruits, minerals and exotic citrus zest on the nose. Sweeter and more pliant than the Bacigalupi, with riper acids. But this has terrific density and superb fruit, and finishes with a powerful tannic spine. The crop level here was just a ton an acre, says Cabral.
The best of the group seems to be both the 2004 and 2005 Zinfandels from the Forchini Vineyard. The 2004 has come on nicely, put on some weight, and shows copious quantities of black raspberry, herb-infused, smoky, spicy, meaty notes, a dark ruby/purple color, medium to full body, and loads of style and personality. This wine has really improved over the last year.
Racy wild berry and strawberry flavors are vivid and sleek, ending with an aftertaste of candied apple. Has good acidity and tannins.
