We love Zinfandel!
Which is true. And this Zinfandel was good…but not amazing. It came highly recommended, so perhaps the bar in my mind was a bit high, but it just fell a little short of what I was expecting.
It was very Zin…fruity, strong but still smooth and a bit spicy, body without being syrupy. It was good at the start. But my husband noticed that the finish was kind of hollow. I think that’s what he said. Perhaps “empty” was his exact term. But you get the idea. Something about the end of the taste of the wine just sort of fell…flat.
Would I buy it again? Well, I’m gathering quite a few nice bottles to buy instead, so maybe not. Would I turn it down if offered? Heck no! It’s very drinkable. It just didn’t rock my world.
Until next week!
