Sipping Fine Wine

A blend of mostly old-vine Zinfandel with Grenache and Carignan. Another one of Joe Wagner’s crafted wines. Bold aromas of dark fruit and spice. On the palate blackberry fruit flavors with notes of cacao, oak and big spice, a bit too much spice for my palate. Full big tannins screaming for decanting, medium finish ending with oaky spice. Needs some age. Tasting Sample!

Deep ruby. Nose of red fruits and oaky berries. Full bodied palate yields dark red fruits and a bit of plum. Medium tannins. Medium acidity. Structured well enough for food. Maybe good for a sipper as well. A very well made reb blend (Zinfandel, Grenache, Carignan) from the Wagner family. Drink now.

Important note, I hit this thing with the vinturi aerator into a decanter for about 20-30 mins. Right away you get smacked with lushes black fruits, plums and blackberries are the biggest hit for me upfront. Behind the fruit I do get some earthy tones. Mainly oak and some kinda spice like turmeric. On the palate, juicy to say the least. Very smooth and subtle for the alcohol content. In the mid palate, that spice comes into play. Not as grippy or chewy as I would like, but otherwise great structure/taste.

Was told this compared to The Prisoner but at a lower price point. It doesn’t compare. Peppery finish.
