ZinSane Paso Robles 2010 Zinfandel, $13.69, 90 points, is a monster of a wine, bright cranberry color with a broad transparent rim, bright red fruit aroma with a hint of alcohol (14.4%) and spice.
This near full bodied wine is delicious bramble fruit, warm alcohol (Some will consider that a fault), licorice, and plum. This wine is insanely jammy, but it's morbidly under control. ZinSane has good acidity and mild tannin.
Finishes well on fruit and spice.
Paired perfectly with a grass-fed strip-steak, freedom fries and a green salad.
Those who love Dry-Creek Zinfandel, may find this similar in style, with maybe just a bit more fruit; let me know what you think.
I bought this wine at The Harvest Market in Bedford (Good job Janice), and I'm going to grab another as soon as possible.
