Renwood BBQ 2011 Zinfandel, $12.56-$13.95, 89+ points, was a deep crushed blackberry purple/red with flashes of maroon up to the broad clear wine-ring and leggy glass wall.
Aromatic toasty blackberry, smoky plum, licorice, and cardamom, were very good.
Near full-bodied with good acidity, mellow tannin, rich silky texture, and flavors reflective of the aromas and red cherry were surprisingly good for such an inexpensive Zinfandel, but then again 2011 was a very good year.
Finished long on the trailing palate, easy spice notes, and a sweet-spot 14.8% alcohol.
I bought the Renwood BBQ 2011 Zinfandel at Angela's Pasta in Manchester.
