Paso Creek Zinfandel-Paso Robles California

Paso Creek Zinfandel Paso Robles 2008 California Zinfandel, $14.50, 88 points, poured a deep-flint-red, still youthful and aromatic with cherry-plum and just a hint of fresh cut hay (Very nice).
Early palate light to medium bodied with fair acidity and mild tannin, Flavors of licorice and red fruit lead the way to a bursting spicy finish.
On the second day, Paso Creek Zin was still tight, but with a slight tang.
This is a competent, well structured Zinfandel from Paso Robles, which is described on the back panel as: "lays claim to the widest temperature swings of any grape growing region in California." (I TOLD YOU THAT YOU WOULD LEARN SOMETHING HERE!)
Paso Creek Zinfandel was bought at Hanaford's super market.
