2011 Terlato Wines The Federalist Visionary Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley, CA, $25 (S) – Rating 90
A jammy Zinfandel, especially for a cold winter’s night. Plenty of fruit with enough juicy acidity to pair well with red meats, especially BBQ. Aromas of blackberry jam, black cherry and cacao. Well balanced tannins with a jammy zinfandel mouth-feel on the palate with flavors of black cherry, plum and dark berries. A certain briariness and spice add complexity. Dark chocolate on the finish.
