Just one word needed…FABULOUS! I like the fruitiness of this 100% zin – and that the taste lingers long.
The winemakers notes…
At Oakville Winery we strive to produce wines that represent our land and its heritage. Our 2009 Zinfandel exhibits flavors of berry, black cherry, juicy plum, spices; such as pumpkin pie spices and lightly cooked pear. In addition; there is a subtle hint of coffee as well. On the palate this Zinfandel is medium bodied with soft tannins, it is supple well balanced and has a delicious lingering taste. This Zinfandel is like a chameleon, in the glass it is constantly changing. A food friendly style, this wine will pair well with pork and lamb dishes; as well as BBQ meat served with a hot and tangy sweet sauce. Aged 12 months in a combination of French, Hungarian and American oak barrels, 50% new.
Next time I am in Napa, Oakville will be a must stop!
