Green And Red Chiles Canyon Napa valley 2007 Zinfandel Revisited, $18.99, 92 points, was surprising good, from stem to stern this eight year old Zinfandel excelled.
I tasted this wine four years ago, but wasn't as pleased as I was with this bottle, but there may be storage factors involved.
Appeared a bright red color which bled into the broad clear wine ring.
Aromas of blackberries, black pepper, and floral components were excellent (still).
Smoother than I remembered it being (2010, 2012); medium-plus body, good acidity, mostly resolved underlayment of tannin, flavors of wild briar berries, licorice, violets, and marjoram herb notes were lively.
Finished long on the trailing palate, warm spices, and a warm 14.8% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my prosaic grilled hamburgers.
