Grgich Hills Zinfandel 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
This gorgeous wine reveals tangy raspberry aromas with notes of underlying black cherry lushness. A subtle touch of strawberry, coupled with a hint of blackberry, lingers gently on the palate. Along with rich, complex flavors which continue to evolve in the glass, this focused Zinfandel has a firm elegant structure, indicative of its long aging potential. Pair this wine with cevapcici (Croatian sausages), a rack of lamb or steak sandwiches.
From a warm year, this is a concentrated, intensely full-bodied wine, given additional color and weight by 3% Petite Sirah. Black pepper, dried herb and a touch of reduction lead to an evolved, elegant thread of blackberry and strawberry.
