Deep Purple Zinfandel 2009, Lodi, CA - $12



CC brought this wine over for our TV viewing night - he purchased it at Target and I found it online for $12/bottle.

Aroma - red and dark fruit, wood, a little hot
Taste - dark fruit, lots of wood, strong black tea, soft to moderate tannins, short finish

I haven't had a Zin in a while as I've been trying out other varietals. We paired this with guacamole and chips, and brownies and it was fine. It's thinner than most Zins, so those who usually like lighter wines will probably like this one.
