Funky cinnamon-plums, baked apples, carrot cake and blackberries. Wild strawberries, sloe berries, sweet, black pepper, blueberry muffin and pencil tip scents. Lean and meaty black currant, sour cherry and blackberry with grape leaves, black plum reduction and fig. Satisfying and multi-textured! #zinfandel #CarolShelton #Mendocino #Healdsburg #oldvine

From the organic Cox vineyard in Mendocino, North of Ukiah. 65 years old vines. Amazingly elegant Zin, juicy but not jammy. Ripe cherries, subtle spices and fresh acidity without the residual sugar that makes so many Zins unattractive. Delicious and terrific value.

Very interesting wine, some cola, thinner but leading into nice acidity. Not jammy, in a good way.

Syrupy fruit leads way to some nice juicy strawberry and cocoa notes, good Zin!
