Hillgate Lake County 2011 Zinfandel, $8.49-$18.99, 78 points, began in the glass as a slightly murky deep purple, purple/red with a clear rim.
The nose was more prune with a hint of cedar than blackberry.
Full bodied with good acidity and mild tannin.
Tart prune and a floral note pervaded the entire palate and into the long unpleasant finish with a bit of heat (14%5 alcohol).
I wish I could say something nice, but it is what it is.
