Fun is the word that comes to mind. This Wine Guerrilla Old Vine Zinfandel is a big fruit forward, jammy delicious sip. So well balanced with integrated tannins and fruit, the 16% alcohol goes unnoticed. Lot’s of blackberry goodness with a hint of root beer and minerality. A touch of Petite Sirah, Carigan and Alacante in the blend adds depth. Twist the screw top and let the fun begin. BTW…The wine paired sinfully well with dark chocolate.
