Forefront (Pine Ridge) 2012 Zinfandel

Forefront (Pine Ridge) 2012 Zinfandel, $10.19-$24.99, 88 points, poured a bright lovely ruby grading purple/red with a broad clear wine ring at the glass wall of some sheeting.
Shy aromas of mulberry, blackberry, and a hint of sour grapes were good.
Medium-bodied with good acidity and a balanced comfortable underlayment of tannin carried good flavors of black fruit, Orange pekoe tea, and cola notes.
Finish long on plum notes, easy warm spices, a tad green, and a restrained 14.8% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my loaded thin-crust pizza.
This is a high QPR (value) red wine!

  1. I did not know that Pine Ridge had a second label.

    1. I didn't either, but as soon as I did, I was interested, and knowing you, you are too (Zin lover that you are).
