2010 Montelena Estate Zinfandel
- Tasting Notes
- This Zinfandel shows a bright, garnet red
color with medium density. The nose is loaded with rich
layers of spice, coconut, and brown sugar along with big fruit
notes of plum, boysenberry, and hints of dried fruit as well.
Beneath all that there is a rich but subtle earthliness reminiscent
of hoisin. The palate opens smoothly with soft round tannins
rolling across the tongue and a firm acid core, both working in
harmony to establish the balance and structure of this wine.
Ripe blackberry and bright strawberry flavors fill the mid-palate,
all beautifully complemented by the nutty underlayer, and rounded
out by the smoked meat notes on the finish.
