2011 Bella Hills and Benches zinfandel

“Candied dark fruit that’s a bit leathery and coffee toned greets the nose along with a nice oak note, nutty, cafe au lait, and gingery spiced. Big yet bright in the mouth with super fruit here, glassy and firm, hard candy like cherry and blackberry flavored with some cracked pepper spice and a little licorice accent note. The tannins are very well integrated and the nice acids drive the finish moderately long finish. This holds its alcohol seamlessly, with a supple, balanced feel.”
