Lovely, lush, juicy, slight vanilla, ripe berry, no dryness. This is MY style.

Fruit forward Zinfandel carried by notes of blackberry, cloves, vanilla and a smooth caramel finish. Bourbon barrel aged. Would give this wine another 2 years. #zinfandel #bourbonbarrelaged

Bought a bottle out of curiosity and that wasn't a wise decision I'm afraid. Horrendous sweetish caramel-like drink, I guess I will have to prepare a stew tomorrow. Ridiculously expensive too.

Very subtle bourbon nose. Fuller bodied than expected for a zin. Nicely peppery.

The bourbon notes are a present, yet subtle, addition. Pleasantly surprised as these experiments often go awry.
