My first time trying this Zinfandel. Its a very nice "middle of the road" in style, Zin. Purple in color. The nose has black cherries, cedar and slight bramble. On the palate, this has good acidity. Not strong but enough to support the fruit. Overall it is softer on the palate, but the black cherry fruit comes thru. Good finish. It drinks well on its own and would work with all sorts of casual food. I think it is best to drink in the next few years, but it wouldn't be surprising if this is drinking well, albeit in a claret style, in ten years.
