This is a big and bold Zinfandel based red Blend from California.
Showing black fruits with tobacco, chocolates, coffee, cola, vanilla, cedar, licorice and mocha.
Full bodied with medium acidity.
Jammy and creamy. Smooth and easy drinking.
Enjoyable by itself, and would pair nicely with a burger.
Would be interesting to try it in a few years, as it might calm down a bit. Might be too sweet for some.
A blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Syrah.
15.7% alcohol by volume.

Along with a vintage bottle of Roederer’s L’Ermitage, I always open a Zinfandel on the 4th of July. Perfect pairings for grilling out and a relaxed day!
I’ve had the Pesenti a few times now (this is my first with the 2017), and it’s always a different beast to me than other Turley zins. In fact, I’m consistently shocked this is a Paso zin as I’d expect this to taste 2-3times as intense. I decanted for two hours, and then consumed over the next 2-3. Ruby in the glass, immediately on the nose this is spicy. Potpourri, black peppered black cherries, underripe raspberries and blackberries, and cedar on the nose. The body is nowhere near as rich as you’d expect, and the acidity is really nice and nervy. It lends to the profile having a spicy and tart mid palate. Rhubarb and peppercorn crusted pomegranate dominate here. It wears its mid 15ABV well. Would be curious to see how this changes with age… — 18 days ago
Really nice blend, well balanced especially for the price. — a day ago
