Sebastiani Sonoma County 2010 Zinfandel, $8.49-$18.99, 89 points, appeared purple/red with a transparent rim at the leggy glass wall.
Aromatic soft floral blackberry and earth were excellent!
The near full body carried fair acidity with moderate tannin.
Flavors of wild blackberry, licorice, coffee, and plum with just a hint of violets were well balanced.
Finished long with a touch of warmth from the 14.5 alcohol, eucalyptus, and paprika spice.
This is an excellent value Zinfandel red wine for the barbecue.
