A little harsh on the nose. Smooth on the tongue with a light dry finish. A good wine, but not for me.

Wonderful zin paired with beer braised beef short ribs with a reduction. Wonderful balance and could have held in the cellar a lot longer.

A dark garnet, the '08 Papapietro Perry Zinfandel 'Elsbree Vineyard' is a lighter style Zin that is more fruity than spicy. A sweet, somewhat syrupy, mouthfeel with cherry-coke and red raspberry-rhubarb compote flavors. Low acid levels contribute to a flabby finish with just a smidgen of spice.
