Tribidrag is a Middle Ages term for Zinfandel (yes, the grape is that old). This would probably sell better if they called it Zinfandel, but I doubt Steve or Carole care. And, that's pretty cool. The wine is a deep ruby in color. Very bright. The nose has black cherries, spice, dust and roasted herbs. On the palate, this is medium bodied. Black cherries with a bit of candied black cherries. That is not to say, this is big. Despite over 15% ABV, this drinks more claret style, if more purple fruits. It's balanced but broader in style. I have no experience to guess how well this might age. It is enjoyable today and (especially for a Zin) food friendly despite not a lot of acidity. This should match very well with spicy foods and all but the lightest foods.
