The color was coppery red, the aroma (A spicy cinnamon plum) was interesting and pleasant, but that was the end of my optimism for a Zin I had never heard of: early-palate light lead to mid-palate floral bitterness that carried over right through a long unpleasant finish. Was it awful? No, but at $24.94 I was greatly disappointed.
To be fair, this Zin was okay paired with a rich American chop suey..
If you are interested in a good Mendocino Zinfandel, try this!
