Steele Mendocino County 'Pacini Vineyard' 2015 Zinfandel, $10.49-$16.99, 90 points, poured a lovely ruby red with a broad clear wine ring and copious stained legs.
Aromatic Zin-grape specific, briar fruit, and a floral vibe were outstanding.
Near full-bodied red wine showed a rather sleek mouth-feel, good acidity, and a supportive underlayment of tannin.
Flavors of licorice, blackberry, and red raspberry rolled into a long finish nuanced with pomegranate, red cherry, easy pepper spices, and a robust 14.5% alcohol.
Paired fine with my Mexican cuisine.
Personal comment: This is one great wine for the pesos paid.
