Taste /Description: This is my first time trying a non-white Zinfandel but first can we talk about this kick ass bottle as it was the first thing I noticed as I cruised the aisles of Total Wine and More looking for some different wines to try. Enough about the look of the bottle, let’s talk about the taste shall we. First off, the very first thing I noticed about this wine is it’s BOLD in flavor. Fruit notes of blackberry, raspberry with hints of mocha and cinnamon. If you’ve never tried a red Zinfandel before you should. Sip mindfully though because this wine has a 14.5% ABV so please drink your water in between glasses. A very good wine. 5 out of 5 stars
