Winemaker Notes: 2019 Scarlett Zinfandel – A classic Zinfandel nose explodes with briary red fruit, licorice root and a bramble berry compote. Glass coating glycerin and natural acidity lift the aromatics and mid-palate, which is medium plus in weight, and frame this garnet beauty throughout the spectrum. In the mouth, the palate is loaded with mixed dark fruits, spice cake, and root beer along with a kiss of new oak.
Tasting Notes: Dark and opulent ruby hues greet the eye as a classic Zin nose flush with red fruit, licorice root, and bramble berry take center stage. Glass coating glycerin, a natural acidity lift, and a medium plus weight frame this garnet beauty throughout. The mid-palate is loaded with mixed dark fruits, spice cake, and root beer. An undeniable streak of anise right down the middle glides into a 20-second plus finish. Full-bodied and structured, a 1 hour decant works magic with this wine or you can lay it down for a few years to uncover hidden layers and complexities.
