Sin Zin Alexander Valley 2007 Zinfandel

Sin Zin Alexander Valley 2007 Zinfandel, $22,99, 90 points, is deep rose red, and the aroma has hints of green and jalapeño peppers, clove, cinnamon, and cedar, but there is plum fruit on the nose as well.
Though I wouldn't describe this Zinfandel as complex, I would describe it as bold, making a statement like a boxer ("Move like a butterfly, sting like a bee" comes to mind); this wine is focused on the edge of firm tannins and carried by an almost medium body of plum with that green pepper having its cameo appearance.
Sin Zin has a long black pepper finish, with just a whisper of mocha.
The Sin Zin carries its 14.4% alcohol very well, though there is a touch of heat here.
I have to believe that a better price is out there, but that said, still a good buy.
