Wine Review: This bright red colored Zinfandel Paso Robles is a terrific deal! It opens with a fragrant blueberry and vanilla oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, juicy and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a cherry-cola and blueberry blend with notes of mild oak and boysenberry. The finish is dry and its flavors last for a very long time. This great value Zin will be a crowd pleaser. I would pair well with barbecue steak tips. Enjoy - Ken
