2009 Skull & Bones Zinfandel
While exhibiting classic Zinfandel fruit and pepper notes, this delicate wine will complement most dishes, without overwhelming them. Skull & Bones pairs beautifully with lighter recipes and spicy flavors, but will still hold it's own with heartier fare. The nose of spicy blackberry, plum, mineral and quince follows through to the palate, punctuated with a burst of juicy acidity, red berry and floral tones. Complex all the way through, with a vein of bright acid framing the soft tannins and velvety mouthfeel. Finishes long and intriguing. Drink now through 2016.
