BlackStone WineMaker's Select 2008 Zinfandel

BlackStone WineMaker's Select 2008 Zinfandel, $10.19-$11.99, 87 points, appears cranberry red in color.
An interesting aroma of leather, earth, plum, and some vegetable quality combine to keep you guessing as to what varietal this wine is.
The medium-plus body carries fair acidity and mild tannin, along with flavors of red cherry, plum, and a hint of licorice.
The finish is truncated with just a hint of spice.
This is a competent wine, one that is versatile and inconspicuous; with a good QPR, I wouldn't shy away from having this as an accompaniment to football parties with pizzas and burgers, but don't expect exclamations either.

  1. Dear NH Wine Man,

    While perusing the web for information concerning the story of when Jesus turned water into Wine, I came across your Blog site and must say it is a wealth of information concerning Wines. I'm sure that if anyone has any questions about wine that they can find the answers right here! Thanks for your Diligence to keep people informed.

    1. Thanks, I think there is a quote that says: let us come and Riesling together;-)
