A Valentine’s Day gift of chocolate-covered cherries with a note promising some Marvin Gaye fueled bedspring squeaking later. Nose is subtle but chocolate is the primary note. On the tongue it’s medium-smooth with lots of typical zinfandel fruit notes, including loads of black cherry and prune. Dry, but not Saharan. Whopping 14.5% alcohol is typical for the primitivo zins coming from the Salento region of Puglia. I felt it needed more years, but can’t deny the fruit was tasty. Zinfans will love it.
