Robert Biale Black Chicken Zinfandel 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oak Knoll|
From Oak Knoll sites near the winery, this bold red is tight in focused tannins and a firm texture. Lifted red fruit dominates-a mix of cherry and raspberry-dipped in dried herb, baking spice and vanilla oak.
The 2017 Zinfandel Black Chicken is medium to deep garnet-purple colored with broody tar, baked black fruit, plums and blueberry preserves with notes of exotic spices and tobacco. The palate is medium to full-bodied, lively, chewy and a little hollow with an earthy finish.
