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.
