Alexander Valley Vineyards Sin Zin Zinfandel 2016
This is big wine with a full rich mouthfeel and earthy, spicy flavors of black cherry, plum, black pepper, apricot and chocolate. The spicy finish really comes through as the wine sits in the glass with additional nuances of dark fruits, brown sugar and warm spices.
"Everyone on our panel agreed: This is a pretty great $20 wine. It has layers of flavor detail, from wild strawberry and wild cherry to eucalyptus and bay. It’s fresh and juicy, delivering a tight, compact zin with immediate appeal. This offers a lot of pleasure for summer drinking, with anything off the grill." -91pts, Wine & Spirits
