When most people hear the word Zinfandel they automatically think of a wine that’s less than amazing to say the least, even seasoned wine drinkers are less likely to buy this grape than the old safe options. As well as all of that then we mention California, most Irish wine drinkers have left the building already.
Here’s a wakeup call wine drinkers,
Zinfandels from California can be awesome .
If you think that Cabernet, Shiraz & Malbec are your type of wines… read on.
Ridge Vineyards in California are royalty when it comes to Zinfandel.
In the glass this wine is dark in colour.
The nose is georgeous, cinnamon, strawberry, sweet tobacco and dark chocolate.
On the palate the wine has a balanced mouth feel, dusty tannins and a vibrant acidity. The fruits are ripe, cassis, blackberry, fig and sweet tobacco leaf. The finish goes on forever, this is a spectacular wine for this money.
This wine deserves your attention.
