Masked Rider 2007 California Zinfandel, $10.80-$14,58, 88 points (bought at Hannaford's super market), is ruby red tapering to cranberry with a clear rim.
The aroma is subtle, but very pleasant with cinnamon, clove, cedar, with hints of licorice.
This dry red wine has a medium-plus body with lip smacking acidity and moderate tannin which carries flavors of tart red cherry/cranberry almost effectively "green" (unripe fruit), with a touch of hibiscus.
A long finish of cayenne trails the tart palate.
