Artezin 2017 Old Vine Zinfandel
A dark garnet, almost brooding Vermillion red color is striking in the glass, much like previous vintages. Aromas of red fruits dominate, showing pomegranate, cherry and boysenberry, accented by white pepper and a cedar-oaky spice. Flavors bring a smile, a true 'Zin' led by raspberry and loganberry, nicely presented with the classic Zinfandel allspice character. This wine is plush, round and coating, with fine grain tannins and a decidedly long finish, suggesting the potential for aging with further complexities and nuances yet to be revealed.
