Wine Find


December 17, 2008|By MICHAEL DRESSER

This is the kind of zinfandel that's easy to look down on as too big, too chunky and too full of alcohol. But it's absolutely delicious, a sensual delight, and the 14.9 percent alcohol is completely overshadowed by an enormous helping of fruit. This wine offers portlike flavors of blackberry, black pepper, blueberry, coffee and chocolate - delivered with a creamy texture that goes down oh-so-well on a cool winter's night.
