Ghost Pines Zinfandel 2013
A bright, focused fruitiness is the strength of this full-bodied, very ripe and enticing wine. It smells and tastes like fresh strawberries, raspberries and cherries, and feels ultrasmooth and polished in texture. With each sip a better sense of depth and concentration builds.
The Tasting Panel
Smooth and showing strawberry and black raspberry; lush with vanilla oak and hints of cocoa; silky and juicy with bright style and fresh flavors; long and charming.
The 2013 Zinfandel, which is 53% from San Joaquin County and 47% from Sonoma, is almost all Zinfandel. Aged in tank with American oak staves in them, it's quite tasty. This is a spicy, meaty Zinfandel with notes of earth, flowers, raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, heady alcohol (14.5%) and a spicy, herbal finish.
A soft and user-friendly quaff, jammed with succulent raspberry, toasty vanilla and spice flavors. A touch of sassafras emerges on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 15,900 cases made.
