Heitz Ink Grade Vineyard 2012 Zinfandel, $23.79-$27.99, 90 points, was cranberry red with flashes of maroon, a broad clear wine ring, and heavy tearing.
Subtle aromas of strawberry, red cherry, and a floral component were okay.
Medium-bodied with good acidity, appropriate grainy tannin, and flavors reflective of the aromas with a touch of oak resulted in a focused straight-forward Zinfandel.
Finished well on hot spices, a hint of toasted almonds, and a sweet-spot 14.5% alcohol.
