2013 InZINerator, California Zinfandel - 3 Liter
Full of big, bold black cherry flavors, it is a lone warrior in the world of basic Zinfandels. Oak aging contributes to the rounded complexity, with just a hint of sweetness. Try this wine with any grilled meat or chicken, or pair with pizza, pasta and burgers!
78% Zinfandel, 9% Syrah, 6% Barbera, 7% Forte
Review from Tastings.com:
90 Points ~ Exceptional "Bright dark garnet color. Fruity, toasty, earthy aromas and flavors of black raspberries, planked oak, crushed peppercorns, and gravel - baked parchment with a slightly chewy, tangy, dry full body and a peppery, amusing, brisk finish with earthy, papery tannins and moderate oak."
