Carol Shelton Wild Thing Zinfandel 2012, Old Vine Zinfandel, Mendocino County, CA, $19 (S) – Rating 91

Carol Shelton Wild Thing Zinfandel 2012Blended from 83% Zinfandel, 15% Carignane and 2% Petite Sirah creating a rather balanced and fruit forward wine without being overly jammy. Aromas of red fruit, strawberry, raspberry and brown spice. Plush mouth-feel with balanced acidity and smooth tannins. Flavors abound of bing cherry, blackberry, briar, raspberry and ripe strawberry with notes of cinnamon and espresso in the finish. A better food pairing Zinfandel than most. Buy This Wine
