Parducci Small Lot Blend Zinfandel 2012
- Out of stock
Offers lovely flavours of fresh blackberry and sweet cherry with complexities of coffee, cocoa, and black pepper. A heavily spiced and quite pronounced bouquet of anise, pepper and clove unfolds with blackberries and damsons as an underlay. Typically for Mendocino Zinfandel the fruit notes are not overly ripe. On the palate, this is dry and medium bodied. The dark fruit lacks the richness or depth of older vines or a warmer climate (such as that seen in Sonoma) but reflects the cooler, younger vines of Parducci’s plantings in Mendocino well. The spice component is carried through from the nose but doesn’t overwhelm. A great match for burgers, roast chicken, sausages, steak, red-sauced pasta and BBQ ribs.
