Grgich Hills Napa Valley 2009 Zinfandel, $24.99-$34.99, 92 points, began opaque trending a lovely crushed black berries red toward a leggy clear glass wall.
Soft aromatic notes of blackberry, earth, cedar, and flowers were subtle and pleasant.
Medium-plus body carried good acidity and mild, yet persistent tannin with a soft blackberry-boysenberry juiciness.
Finished long with a touch of the 15.3% alcohol, tobacco, eucalyptus, and a bounty of spice.
