Sainsbury's, Taste the Difference Zinfandel, Paso Robles, 2015
(at Mary Ward House, London, 08 Mar 2017)
Drinking Window: 2017 - 2020
Made by Josh Beckett of Chronic Cellars for Sainsbury's, this Zinfandel is blended with Petite Syrah and Grenache, making for a fruit-forward wine full of fragrant red cherry, menthol, sweet spice and vanilla aromas. In the mouth, bright plum and red fruit flavours are joined by intense, sweet and creamy vanilla tones and a touch of mint. There is a woody presence that delineates the structure. The sweet fruit is a bit addictive, but may be a bit much for more than a glass or two without food.
