Estate Late Harvest Zinfandel 2015
The 2015 Estate Late Harvest is one of exotic juiciness made in a balanced dessert wine approach. With aromas of dusty spiced red fruit and pepper, this wine explodes on the palate with juicy bright raspberry and holiday spice. The tart yet slightly sweet fruit lingers long enough to make one not forget its lovely profiles yet leave the palate without the sticky syrupy after taste. Expect this wine to cellar beautifully for the next 8-10 years.
This is an intense wine and not for the reasons one might think. Upfront, in-your-face spicy tart red fruit bursts onto the palate with surprisingly dryish finish.
