Smoking Loon Old Vine Zinfandel 2012, California


My Rating 82 Points. 
Price $11.


This is an easy drinking wine for everyday.
Color is ruby, with medium intensity and a wide red rim.

Nice and gentle nose of wild red flowers, strawberries, blueberries, sweet cherries, Mediterranean spices, white pepper, light wood and some vanilla.

Medium bodied and simple, yet smooth.

Dry and lively on the palate with blueberries, strawberries, red currants, grape juice, cherries, oak, light clove and light black pepper.

Nice finish with some black pepper and bitter almonds, that accompanies soft green tannins and a little burn at the back of the throat.

14% alcohol by volume.

Not a bad everyday Zinfandel. Can be had by itself or with chicken or pork dishes.
