Dancing Bull Winemaker’s Reserve California Zinfandel, 2012

My Rating 86 Points.   

Price $13. 
Dark ruby in color with a dark brick rim.

Fruity on the nose with black currants, blackberries, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, smoke, coffee, chocolates, candy and black pepper.

Medium plus in body and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, wood, light vanilla, light cola, black licorice and black pepper.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and spicy ending.

A nice Californian Zinfandel.
Simple, balanced and smooth.
Nice and light mouthfeel, on this 4 year old Zinfandel. Enjoyable by itself or with food like BBQ Meats. I paired it with a cheese plate and fruits.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 90 minutes in a decanter. Peaking now, so if you have one, drink up.

13.9% alcohol by volume.
