Forenzo Mendocino County 2012 Zinfandel, $15.29-$19.99, 86 points, appeared deep ruby trended a bright pomegranate red toward a very broad clear ring at the leggy glass wall.
Lots of sweet red fruit, strawberry and sweet red cherry with watermelon and earth on the nose were profuse (contrary to the back label).
Medium body carried bright acidity and moderate-plus tannin onto the palate with excited vigor and flavors of strawberry and caramel which trailed into the very long finish that snowballed spice and some heat (14.9% alcohol).
