I think I’m turning into a Zinf-a-phile! Maybe the California native in me is coming through.
We liked this one. Here are my notes:
- Fairly smooth
- A little tangy, but not tart or sour
- Some kind of fruit taste – maybe plum?
- A little hot at the end but not overly so – makes for a nice finish/after taste
- Husband’s assessment? He thought it was a little “thick” (I would say “syrupy,” but I think we mean essentially the same thing), but drinkable
I started thinking after we had tasted the wine that the thickness/syrupiness might be remedied by drinking it with a really flavorful meal, like a steak or a spicy red sauce pasta. We tend to try these while we’re cooking rather than eating. I will find a sturdy appetizer to go along these wine tastings with so we can compare how drinkable they are alone versus with food.
Notes are better! Until next week.
