Deep violet. Brooding aromas of cherry, bitter chocolate, licorice pastille, pepper and herbs; showing a serious side today. Firm, concentrated and powerful but not heavy, with creamy-sweet dark berry flavors leavened by a tangy mineral quality that runs through the wine. This deep, gently tannic wine should live to an old age on its sheer depth of fruit. Finishes with good grip and subtle, lingering tannins. (ST)
The 2008 Zinfandel Papera Vineyard has a more raspberry, blueberry, and boysenberry-infused nose, a similar dark opaque purple color, tart, high acids, medium to full body, and juicy fruit. (RP)
Made in a big, overripe, soft and slightly sweet style, this will appeal to fans who like a more flamboyant Zinfandel. It's very ripe in berry jam, orange pekoe tea, cola and spice flavors. Almost a food group in itself. Drink with powerful, rich fare, such as spicy Vietnamese beef, Mexican tamales and tacos, or good old rubbed beef barbecue.
